I am so sad that I can’t draw. I can hardly even draw a stick figure. Anyone who can draw is someone I envy. Like Jen’s sketches. Wow. If only I could sketch like that. In school I was hopelessly bad in drawing class. The assignments were way too difficult for me so I sort of just gave up and realised that I suck at it.
I am like that. If I can’t be a professional at once and I know I can never be as good as a professional I just give up even trying. Why should I even try to become better at photography when I can never be as good as a professional? It’s like in my own mind I don’t even have the right to try. Leave it to the people who are good at it – don’t be pathetic with your lousy attempts is what I am telling myself.
So a big purpose of this blog is to challenge that in myself. To find my own creativity and realise that I can be creative even though I am not perfect or ”the best of the best”. There will always be people out there better than you are no matter what you do. Should that stop you from trying? If you asked me that my obvious answer is no. But when I ask myself the answer is completely the opposite. Where is the logic in that?
So why not challenge myself with drawing as well? I totally suck at it – I can take a photo, but I can’t for the life of me draw so this is way way WAY out of my comfort zone.
I found a couple of tutorials online on how to draw a cat. What about if I try to follow these tutorials just for fun? They are really difficult – it’s not like you can ”draw a cat” simply by following these tutorials. It requires talent which I don’t have. Thought I might tape my attempts – should lead to a good laugh at least! 🙂 What do you think?
This one is supposedly an ”easy” one:
To be continued. I hope….! Am not promising anything. Would you like me to try?
