Day 19 - A Drawing a Day

Drawing On the Masters
A critic at my house sees some paintings. Greatly perturbed, he asks for my drawings. My drawings! Never! They are my letters, my secrets.
Paul Gauguin

Cactus bits, colored pencil on toned paper, by Susi Olson. "Wow my little cactus finally has decided to grow! I think I should ignore them more often. I tried setting a timer to see what i could do in ten minutes." Susi Olson

How About: Taking Susi's tip, and setting a timer to limit your drawing time. Sometimes, a little pressure is a wonderful thing. If you step out of your own way, not thinking so much about drawing, but thinking about "beating the clock" you might find your inner artist takes over in very lovely ways.
