That is the first two weeks of college over and done with (wow that went by quick!). We started off the year by working on our drawing skills, to be more specific portraits.
Now here is the weird thing, I like drawing portraits, I’m not especially good at it but it’s something I enjoy doing (usually when I come across a selfie on Instagram that I like). The thing is, I like doing portraits at home because I can take as long as I want to make sure everything is in proportion and looks right. But we don’t do that in college.
For the most part we are given a short amount of time (20 or 30 minutes) to do a portrait. Now I understand why we do that, the more portraits you draw the better you’re going to get at it. But that doesn’t mean I have to like drawing a portrait in 20 minutes. Maybe it’s the perfectionist in me but I would prefer taking as much time as I need to make them as good as I can be (and I’ll probably still not be happy with them but that’s a subject for another post!).
