I’m trying to get back into good creative habits. It’s surprisingly hard and I came close to giving up earlier today before I’d even begun. I started drawing only to feel I couldn’t do it. Well I can, I know I can, but it has to be on my terms. You see I’m not good with drawing pencils and pens and that’s what I was pushing myself to use. It sapped the joy and passion from the activity and frustrated me. Pastels, charcoals and chalk pencils, however, are a different ball game entirely.
Can I keep up with my wish to draw on a daily basis? I have no idea, I can share today’s offering though now that I’ve conquered the hurdle that was holding me back. This week it’s Remembrance Day in the UK so the poppy is rife to honour and remember those who have fought and died for our country.
