I started drawing my first flowers in my drawing and watercolor class. The first day was challenging! I was attempting to draw a person. Today is better. I just had to draw a flower. My teacher said I did well. I am learning about composition this week. I have been waiting for years to take a drawing and watercolor class along with the art quilting class I plan to take next month. We are reading Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards. I have had that book for years. We also had a great conversation about high art versus low art, the myriad of ways people have expressed themselves creatively and how we have just appreciated art for art’s sake. My teacher said my drawing might have been too detailed. I felt that was a good thing. It meant I was paying attention to what was all around me.
