A.K.A. Drawing Boot Camp.
I have a great many tactics for avoiding spending time drawing. Which, when I am developing a series of quilts based on my doodles, is in no way a good thing. My confidence in my drawing, and my drawing habits, need to improve.
Being me, I usually end up taking a drastic approach. True story – in university I chose my major, Chemistry, to get over the fear of blowing myself up in labs.
Starting in a week, for six weeks, I am going to devote ALL my studio time to drawing, except for 2-3 hours per week to work on finishing Life Study quilts that are waiting in the wings.
I had already signed up for Lyric Kinard’s Artist’s Toolbox course.
I had signed up to do Carla Sonheim’s Silly Drawing with my daughter.
I have signed up for Doodling Designs with Susan Sorrell
I have Carla Sonheim’s Imaginary Creatures course materials, and her book Drawing Lab.
And if that’s not enough, I have 100 Creative Drawing Ideas from the public library, and Finding your own Visual Language in my personal library.
I am going to keep track of my hours in my timesheet, so that I don’t avoid drawing by avoiding studio time.
At the end of the six weeks, I will have more confidence in my drawing, have better drawing habits, and a lot of source material to use in quilts.
