Challenge: You Can Draw in 30 Days (Lesson 1)

I’ve always wanted to know how to draw. More often than not, I have a strange impression that I know hot to draw, imagining that I’m capable of really good drawings, but every time I sit down in front of a blank sheet, nothing good comes out of it. To be completely honest, it’s a complete wreck :). I tried to copy some photos, to draw from imagination, to draw in a kid style…but it doesn’t really work.

So I found a brilliant book that teaches you to draw in 30 days, even if you have little or no previous drawing experience.

I decided to take up the challenge and complete the 30 days by the time I leave Kyoto (though I guess it’ll happen sooner than that as I have a looooot of free time :)).

The first thing you need to do in Day 1 is to draw 3 things: a house, a plane and a bagel. In this way, in Day 30 you can see how much you have progressed. After that, the teaching begins, step by step (like drawing a sphere, an apple, etc).

So I did:

I’m curious how will my drawings look in Day 10, Day 20 and Day 30. Will post photos of the progress.

Off drawing now!

  2. Thanks :). Yes, I know, I felt so intimidated though I really wanted to know how to draw. When I was a kid I was actually drawing/painting but once I got older I think I got scared of it. Now I’m back on the good track:).
