Today I chose no 7 on the EDM list "draw a bottle, a jar or a tin from your kitchen". I opened a cupboard and the first thing I noticed was a bottle of Jim Beam. I have to say it's not my tipple but my DH's. I knew this would be challenging straight from the off as I have no idea how to draw or portray glass. Again I have used my little travel watercolour paints but I have also used a couple of Derwent Inktense pencils. It is far from perfect but hey that's ok, these sketches, for me, are all about interpretation, observation and study. Its also all part and parcel of my new year goal to be more relaxed and enjoy my work not to fret, stress or worry that everything has to be perfect or has to have big wow impact. Last year A lecturer asked us to watch a Video on TED, it is Elizabeth Gillbert giving a talk about creative genius. I have to say I have watched it several time because it is fascinating and I can relate to what she is saying. I won't spoil what she has to say for those who want to watch the video but I can tell you that my spirit was definitely with me today.
