I had to set down the tatting shuttles for a while as I’m really not getting anywhere with it (but I’m not giving up! After all, it took me nearly 3 years to teach myself to crochet ’cause I kept getting frustrated with it, but I just couldn’t stay away forever!! And tatting is just to beautiful to give up on!!) But to occupy myself in the meantime, I decided to do something I’ve loved since I was a small child (I’m sure the title of this post gives it away ;)), drawing is so much fun and it’s easy to learn right off the internet for free!
Interweave's "Artist Daily" site has a selection of free downloads that include Drawing Basics, Oil Painting Techniques, and Watercolor Instruction, Wikihow also has a good selection of drawing “how-to’s” including how to
Draw a Medieval Castle which I used this evening to learn how to draw the picture below. For the moment I’m concentrating on sketching and having a lot of fun with it but I may branch out into painting eventually.
My first castle!!!
