I’ve realized, painfully, that I have great difficulty drawing. I understand all the principals of depth perception and contrast and form and structure, but drawing for me is very difficult.
I like to draw though, and add some colour here and there. Accurately representing something can sometimes be abit boring so I like to make my own rules and add something that wasn’t there to begin with, like a different colour or shape.
What is it called? Why? I feel so uncomfortable when I try to accurately represent something, it feels like I’m not doing it any justice, but then, I draw the object in question in a slightly different way,
Bigger than the other one
Smaller than the other one
And then it looks right to me and feels right too.
Maybe this happens because I need to take classes, attend more life drawing sessions and ultimately prove that what i’m saying is false.
But before I do that i’m going to play around abit and see if what i’m saying has any deeper meaning.
