But I still remember the feeling of accomplishment I had after making that silly giraffe.
OK, here is my challenge. Take just five minutes and draw, sketch, doodle, whatever you want to call it. Five minutes isn't much time. In five minutes you can create something. Draw what you see if you don't know what to draw.
Why should I draw?
Because it is so good for your brain and for your emotions.
The first thing you need to do (if you don't draw already) is to refuse to listen to that inner critic that tells you you can't draw.
And yes, this is important work. It is God-like work. Check out this site that lists 23 verses on creativity.
Something changed in me when I began to draw. You don't need to draw for anyone but yourself. You don't have to show anyone your picture. You don't have to accomplish anything.
If you don't know what to draw and you don't want to draw what you see, draw a curvy vertical line. Now draw another vertical line that mirrors every curve in the first line. I guarantee it will get you looking at the paper differently.
And if you try it tell me. Tell me what you experience. Try it for a week. Try it for a month -- whatever, let me know.
You can even go to my YouTube Channel and use my drawing videos if you like. Nothing I draw on my channel is difficult -- all of them are easy peasy!
