So yesterday I drew a picture of a tree again. I don't like it as well as the first one. BUT, this one is in color, so it's got that going for it.
It's too chunky where the branches split off. And the watercolor pencil didn't dissolve as much as I wanted it to. But what's done is done, and I'm stuck with it. ;)

Today I was thoroughly uninspired. And in a blue funk. So my picture turned out kinda...boring, uninspired, and lousy. But what can ya do? Absolutely nothing, except draw.

All of a sudden, I feel like I'm losing enthusiasm. I feel like I can't draw worth a hoot, and why bother drawing if I'm bad a it? And was this art class that starts on Tuesday, was it really such a great idea if I can't draw?
Painting I find a bit easier. But I haven't been doing much painting. You can't really paint much in 10 minutes, unless you know exactly which colors you're going to use, and have them mixed ahead of time.
Anyway, I feel dismal and dumb and dismayed at what I've gotten myself into. But I'm not quitting. Not in the first month. Not in the second month. And not in any of the other months, either. I refuse to quit, even if I hate the whole sketchbook! 
So there, Self-Pity-Monster!

I'll give it another go tomorrow. After all,

"Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it."

I think you are doing a great job, if we quit we dont get better, the more you sketch the better you get.
