This past year, I made a commitment to work consistently on watercolor. I also began attending a sketch club in order to improve my ability to draw people. There were also some YouTube videos which helped my skills tremendously. Proko focuses on drawing human figures and John Muir Laws, a naturalist, demonstrates how to draw animals and plants. I recently went through all of the paintings and drawings I did in 2014 and placed the loose ones in my basement. Comparing my work from the beginning of the year to that produced last month helped to give me a sense of progress.
The other week, I realized that I missed embroidery. All of my other craft supplies hadn’t been touched in over a year. I decided to put my watercolors away for a few weeks to finish old projects and start a few new ones. I would like to use my improved drawing skills to create some new embroidery designs. After seeing all of the progress I have made in a year, I would like to make a commitment to spend even more time working on my art.
