I have been practicing my drawing (there are so many great step by step tutorials online!)
in my moleskine...pen for size.
Definitely the hardest thing I've tried.
Go to www.drawspace.com for free drawing lessons.
playing with my sparkly gel pens;
revived from the dead!
and oh, people were NOT lying when they
ranted and raved about how awesome it is.
It flows spectacularly,
is bright and just POPS against dark color.
I painted the background black,
and at first tried to use colored pencils.
I don't think they are supposed to color over shiny, acrylic paint.
I tried my Neocolor Crayons.
I doodled some mandalas.
and bought some black cardstock.
Oh, colored pencils worked on that!
I got bored and kinda gave up on it though :)
Should I settle down and find my niche?
I think, eventually.
But this is all along the journey of finding myself,
and for the first time...ever...
I can say that it feels good.
