I am following a youtube channel these days; Art Prof, to learn art techniques and practice.
The reason I am able to sit through even an hour long tutorial is this woman who is teaching there. The way she explains everything keep you hooked till the end.
I drew this today..
I was practicing charcoal drawing with the help of a tutorial from the same channel using a reference photo of somebody I know (the end result doesn’t look like her at all, as usual)
The art prof said “allow yourself to make mistakes”.
And I felt these words so deeply.
If I compare my first charcoal work that I sketched some months back to this…they don’t even look like they are done by same person.
The reason I allowed myself to make mistakes.
You have to unchain yourself and let go of control you want to exert on yourselves.
Am I making sense??
I dont know.
And then you have to forgive yourself too.
I remember initially I wanted to draw a lily in charcoal and few minutes into the piece I felt I ruined it. I just crumbled the paper. That couldn’t help my anger so I tore it to bits. shredded it with my hands.
Now I let myself make mistakes then I forgive myself and try to correct them.
Things don’t have to be perfect, they cant be.
Thats how life works..
