I'm slowly working away week by week on this course. Pandemic work life is a slog but this course makes me feel like I'm in art school on my weekend and it's something I look forward to. I really appreciate the thought process behind bringing greater intentionality into line work. I enjoy doing pen and ink work as well, and already see myself trying to apply more emotion to lines with ink, and being more willing to try working with fast lines, even at the expense of potentially ruining some works. It's hard to break free of the habit of wanting all things to work out to some extent and drawing conservatively, but I know I'd rather develop great skills and flat our ruin some projects than keep doing mediocre drawings and never move forward. I really appreciate this course and the opportunity to be challenged!
