There are so many people who make my life the best, that I
don't even know where to begin. But for the next 10 things
I learned in 2021, I'll repeat the joy of learning from other
artists on line. Today watching Harry Stooshinoff draw, I
got the urge to draw the tulips sitting in my kitchen. I'm
organizing my studio, and it's in a state of flux at the moment.
Tomorrow is another day.
But inspired by Harry's amazing one minute video I began a
line drawing of the tulips. This is the second one. I began in
ballpoint pen, which everyone raves about, but it didn't work
for me, and the pen went dry, so I began again. If the flowers
last until tomorrow, I'll work on it a bit more.
Line drawing is not the ideal medium for tulips -- they deserve
colour. But that made it an even more interesting exercise.
I had a lot of fun.
Have an enjoying your life day.
