No, I’m not contemplating getting a tattoo; but judging from the ink stains on my fingers these days, it does appear that I’m getting inked!
I’ve been practicing my pen and ink drawing. Though, to be honest, at this point I feel like I’m taking two steps forward and three back. This YouTube video has provided the inspiration:
Amazing how easy Yelen makes it seem, right? But in each of MY attempts, something has gone wrong…
(Oh, except for the “practice” drawing I did on scratch paper – see figure at bottom left – which of course came out great.) Grrr! Such is life. But if I haven’t learned anything else in my years of working as a musician and artist, it’s that you don’t get anywhere without a hell of a lot of practice! So, if you don’t hear from me in a while, don’t worry. I’m practicing.
