:: Finding that I dislike the toothy texture of pastel paper. Gessoed drawing paper with a layer of bright color seems like it's working better for me. Working smaller (These still lifes here measured 6 in. x 6 in. I think next time I'll increase the size to 9 x9 and see how that goes.) seems less intimidating and more manageable (at this point) than having to fill up a huge page of my drawing pad.
:: Found it a little difficult to to make my place drawings more abstract than I wanted and which was the direction to go with the lesson. I guess it's all about letting go and not being so stuck on depicting the image.
:: Discovering that the camera is a really helpful tool to be able to "see".
:: I'm pretty pleased with the work I've done this week. This definitely is work.
