I've been to another drawing class and I'm still not really enjoying it. It's hard work I tell you. We now have to come up with a project each, an idea of what we would like to put in a place and what place that is. Real or imaginative. And then produce a lot of sketches of this installation/exhibition blabla. I'm so fed up with the whole thinking and analyzing, drawing abstract shapes and commenting on each others genius strokes and blobs. It's not me. It's not what I had in mind. I thought we would be shown some sketching techniques and that being able to tell what someone has drawn wouldn't be a bad thing. The teacher tried to push me a bit today 'cos I told her I felt stuck and that I'm not used to draw big scale and with charcoal etc. She said my drawings are more like signs and that I shouldn't worry if people can't see what it is, 'cos no-one cares what it is anyway. Oh shut up! :) I'm probably just rebelling because I'm way outside of my comfort zone. But even if I never learn to enjoy drawing and thinking abstract, I guess the class has helped me figure a few things out and to draw some new stuff.
I'm sorry you had to wake up and see anger in here, but I feel much better now haha. Writing is good therapy! Sweet dreams
