52 Creative Exercises To Make Drawing More Fun


I finally got this book, which I've been wanting ever since it came out. It looks even better than I thought it would. It came at a good time, because we are going camping this week to celebrate our 35th anniversary. ( It was supposed to be the year we went to Italy, but...) I plan on using my spare time while we are camping to do the exercises in Carla's book. I'm hoping it will be the kick start I need.
I have completely lost my impetus for doing my print project. I haven't painted anything for weeks. I probably won't finish out the year. I think I will just go back to working on originals for now. I have much less time to paint while the house is for sale and various other things are going on, so it's just not possible to keep going.
Here is a link to the book on Amazon

I've missed my visits to your blog-
I mostly post on my Long Island Daily Photo now.
I love your work & this book sounds like a great gift for someone I know.
Thanks for the tip & have fun creating on your camping trip!

Hi Julie,
Great to meet you! What an interesting book....for some people the idea of drawing NOT being fun would be sacrilege...but I am afraid that I fall into the camp of never drawing unless I have a reason to. Sounds like I need it too.
All the best
Sandra
