Old dog, new trick
Although I love to take photos, I’ve never much thought of myself as having any particular artistic talent. After a lifetime painting houses, if I take up watercolors I can make a brush do anything I want it to but that isn’t really talent, just experience with the tools.
So it was with some trepidation and great hopes that I took a course on “Drawing with the right side of the brain” at some center in Oakland with BJ Ledgerwood.
I’ve never drawn anything I liked. I’ve never drawn a person who would be recognizable.
Then I took the class. We did some exercises, talked about some techniques, and started a project to copy a photo.
It’s simply amazing what you can do if you give it a try. Why not take a class in something you think you can’t do?
