So, what's the difference between a year ago, and today, as far as drawing goes? Here's what I think:
1) I'm playing while I'm drawing--It's just a drawing, after all--it's supposed to be fun (and isn't everything, really?).
2) I have, to a certain extent, silenced the critical voice in my head. Well, I still hear the critic's voice, but I try to keep it down to a buzz rather than a roar.
3) Danny Gregory's books--He made me realize that drawing is as much about seeing as anything. To see takes time.
4) I'm relaxed, not so attached to outcome (see my reposted post a couple of weeks ago, to hear all about my epiphany).
