Part 2 Building a visual vocabulary – Project 4 Developing design ideas – Stage 2 Looking for shapes and drawing – Exercise 4

This exercise is about drawing from real objects applying everything we’ve learned about drawing so far.  I seemed to forget what we had been learning and reverted to tentative, confidence lacking drawing. (although I do concede they are an improvement on my earlier attempts of a few months ago)

I was encouraged by a friend to gather some foliage from the garden so that I could draw from a subject more interesting to me.

I was a little tentative at first but became more confident.   This took a couple of hours.  I still need lots and lots of practice and find it fascinating that, although I know this and keep telling myself, my progress is still being hindered by my own lack of confidence.
