I’ve got all of these images in my head. When I close my eyes, they are stunningly beautiful. But when I put the pencil to paper, I hit a road block. It’s like some part of my brain refuses the image to come out. The only thing I’ve mastered is stick people. I’m not into some color by number computer program. I have a sketch pad, pencils and erasers ready to go… I just need to know how to start. So, to any of you who are in this field, and advice would be greatly appreciated. Plus, I learned long ago how important art therapy can be, so now I’m on a mission. Writing and drawing. Got to do something to pass the time… But I really want to capture these images that drift through my brain on paper before they’re gone for good. And I should also mention that artistic ability runs in my “family.” My siblings (who shall remain nameless because they don’t deserve the credit) are excellent at painting and drawing. So, it’s in my blood. I just have to figure out how to get it from my brain to my fingertips and then onto the page.
So, a sincere thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
