I attended an intensive figure drawing workshop for 5 days. I wish I had time to draw like this more regularly. Maybe I should say "my painting skill" since I have come to the conclusion that I feel more comfortable with a brush than a pencil. Drawing with a brush forces me to forget what the books say and listen to my instinct. Every sketch is a struggle to push my limit a tiny bit further.
It was painful (maybe my sketch looks like I was having fun but I wasn't). But after 5 days, I'm actually improved a lot. It is amazing to be able to imagine how to draw/paint things in front of my eyes. "If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it, I know I can achieve it." _Jesse Jackson
