Take 1 & 2 :: Prises 1 & 2

Learn to draw. Try to make your hand so unconsciously adept that it will put down what you feel without your having to think of your hands. Then you can think of the thing before you. (Sherwood Anderson)

My jittery dog finally got to sleep after his second daily walk so I started sketching him… and just as I was getting there, he jerked, got up, made a few turns, and then flopped down with a bang on the wood floor, shifting places as his head had been comfortably resting on a rug. Drawing people and animals is difficult for me. Luckily sketching my dog does not intimidate me, as people drawing does.

Mon chien s’est finalement endormi après sa deuxième promenade de la journée donc j’ai pu commencer à le dessiner … et comme j’étais dans le “moment”, il sursauta, se leva, fit quelques tours, puis se laissa tomber d’un coup sur le plancher, en changeant de place. Dessiner les gens et les animaux est difficile pour moi. Heureusement dessiner mon chien ne m’intimide pas, comme dessiner les personnes le fait.
