But no, it was nothing like that.
After almost eight months of not creating any art (the longest time as an adult), I finally sat down and drew over the weekend!
I felt this frustration and resistance and did cry a bit while drawing, but it was time and that was that.
Here's what I started:
It's going to be a painting of an owl. I used a basic grid pattern to ensure the proportions matched the reference photo.
Little by little it'll get done. I still have two unfinished paintings from last year and I do NOT want this to be a third.
If anything, I told myself I could always rip up the drawing if too much time passed without any progress.
We shall see what becomes of this piece.
