Learning to draw (2)

(Photo and drawing by Robin. 2007)

So, what do you think? Should I take up drawing cartoons?


I’m thinking that may well be my niche, if I have one, when it comes to drawing.

Yesterday I sat down with a photo of my granddaughter and attempted to draw her. It’s a long distance between cartoon penguins and portraits, that’s for sure. When I finished, Emma looked a lot like a hobbit which is not, of course, how Emma really looks. It did, however, confirm that I’m better (at least for now) at cartoons and cartoonish drawings.

I may not be (and may never be) a master of drawing, but I am enjoying the learning of it.

And cartoons are fun. 🙂

Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life. ~Henry L. Doherty
