Since starting to draw again my life has felt enriched. I love the process of recreating an image in pastel or pencil; building the layers of colour and capturing all of the details and intricacies of colour, texture, shape and light. Well, I am trying to! But one thing that has suffered since art entered my life again is my sleep! My brain is buzzing with thoughts and ideas about my drawings....Are they good enough? Am I happy with my latest piece? What did I do well? What did I do badly? What did I learn? How can I improve? What shall I draw next? Am I using the right tools and materials? How can I build a following?
When will I make more than I spend? Is this all just a pipedream? The voice in my head doesn't stop......so I get up and make a cup of tea (just like tonight) and do some research and look at the amazing work of other artists and dream that one day I might be like them.
