My first constructive drawing
Story and artwork from Els, Drawing Academy student
It’s been a couple of months since I enrolled in the Drawing Academy course and I have been learning so much.
I used to draw a lot as a child and teenager but felt I didn’t have enough talent to pursue it further. Years later I decided to take painting classes. We used to trace the photo onto the panel. This felt more like making an exact copy rather than creating something original. I wanted to understand more about the shape and essence of the subjects I was drawing. I had a very limited knowledge of human anatomy and already after a couple of lessons I started to notice mistakes in drawings I did before. I ended up realizing that my true passion is pastel drawing and this course is helping me enormously in making more anatomically correct drawings.
This is my first constructive drawing.
