Drawing by Sally Ayres
Hiking in Yosemite!
I am a retired educator who began drawing about 15 years ago by taking courses with my daughter who had just finished college. It was a time for us to bond. When she married and moved away, I continued. I sometimes work in colored pencil, but mainly, if I am not drawing, I also work with pastels, which feels much like a drawing medium.
I try to fit my art time early in the morning by. Getting up at 5:30 to work a few hours while the house is quiet. Sometimes I can return to it later in the afternoon, but I do lead a full life of activities. I attend life drawing classes when the local college offers them, but I have not gained sufficient understanding of anatomy of to be as successful as I would like.
I am currently taking the Anatomy Master Class and I am learning so much which I hope will strengthen my work. The lessons are very complete with great examples and opportunities to draw and learn, as well as supportive critique from the tutors.
I know I would Learn a lot if I were able to take the Drawing Academy course.
