I love your artwork, it's pure beauty! I took a very high level art class for drawing about a year ago because it was recommended by my art teacher. The class completely terrified me, I felt like I was the weakest in the class and every time I tried to draw I would get so frustrated because it wouldn't come out right. I haven't even picked up a drawing pencil or touched my sketch book since December. So, basically, I admire you and your work so much! Love ya xx
Thank you so much, that’s so kind! It blows that that class was such a negative experience for you, when making art is such a positive thing. I think at some point we all struggle with comparing our work to the work of others, it can be really crippling though, as I’m sure you know.
I hope you start to create again soon and get back to that sketch book. My sketchbooks are all private, which I think really helps as they can be intimidating little (or big) things when they’re new and I write little notes in them too, they’re a total mess. If art makes you happy, let that be enough, you don’t need to be so hard on yourself (I’ve had to work on that too). Creating for the sake of creating is not a bad thing and try to remember that you’re the only one who can make art like you. Totally cheering you on and I wish you weren’t anon! (heart emojis go here)
