I had my second drawing class today (as you might have gathered from the photo). We discussed contour drawing, gesture drawing and started on shading. As our models for the day, our teacher brought in many of his son's toy dinosaurs. After a while, we were encouraged to wander around and see each other's efforts.
It turns out that I am relatively good at this (at least from what I could see). Of course, that is based solely on the relative scale of adults taking a summer introductory drawing class. Still, I feared I'd be surrounded by people woefully unaware of their amazing talents. Phew!
