The first week of Buildings class, and I’m already behind! I keep promising myself I will NOT consider myself behind, because when I do, that’s when I quit. I don’t want to quit, I love this class far too much! (And the people! The people are so great!)
I have thusly given myself permission to go fast! Finished is better than perfect, and I can still learn plenty if I do a sketch in 15 minutes! they don’t all have to be my very best.
Then, since I had a dentist appointment I decided to treat myself to a sketch outing afterwards. When I did the course last time, for the outdoor assignment to sketch a church, I’d gone to St. Joseph’s only to find it had burned and was razed completely to the ground!
Now here is the new church, almost two years later, nearly completed. I knew I had to sketch St. Joseph’s for this assignment, and capture that story!
I will say that attempting a sketch just after the dentist really had my hand ultra shaky! I did the Edge on location, but as I was feeling poorly, and the construction workers kept eyeing me in the parking lot, I decided to head home. I finished with the Shapes, and Volumes from the photograph. I’m very proud of myself I did some of it on location, as I’m working on breaking through that mental barrier!
I’m loving class, and I’m excited to get to Lesson Two this week!
This is very interesting, informative and enjoyable.
