This morning I worked on my first exercise with a teacup and saucer, a sugar bowl and a creamer from my dining set. The first page of attempts -- 2B pencil, timed at 1 or 2 minutes each -- wasn't so great, and took a good deal of energy despite the short intervals of time:

The second page -- a single attempt before posting to the class forum -- was much better. (Note: my photography skills are another matter.)
|Lesson 2 - Second Steps|
I've begun to think perhaps I haven't forgotten all I learned in my Beginners' Drawing & Watercolour class with Sharon Williams in Calgary several years ago. If I can get my brain to stop hurting with the effort, I might actually enjoy this!
