Life Drawing March 31 2014

I went life drawing last night and found myself a little frustrated because no matter what I did, I just couldn't seem to get in the zone. I tried going through some techniques that usually help me get into the right frame of mind like gestures and breaking things into blocks (deconstructing the anatomy into smaller and more digestible shapes) but it wasn't working.

For a better part of the evening, I was distracted by my frustration. I eventually realized what was happening and calmed myself and focused on doing the actual drawing rather than how they would turn out. In the end, I managed to draw a few that I was happy with.

Being a creative person doesn't necessarily mean you will have a successful drawing each time but try not to let the failures distract you from getting to your successes.
