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.

I did. I can't believe it, but I did it.

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?
