Learning to Draw

One of my friends challenged a group of us on a social networking site to draw from this online tutorial. I am no great artist, but I thought I’d give it a go, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out! I think I might even put it on the fridge.
I was surprised by how relaxing it was. I have always associated drawing with stress – I’ve never felt I’m very good at it, and one art teacher in particular used to very publicly despair of me – but just working methodically on a drawing from a tutorial was quite chilled out and very absorbing. A bit like following a tricky knitting pattern.
