I took a drawing class recently at my local community college. Then I took a class in watercolors, and one in 2D Design.

I had a great time remembering how much fun it is to draw using art supplies rather than the keyboard and digital art programs! I used to draw for hours a day when I was a little girl, back when crayons and paper could keep me enthralled for days.

I drew when I went to college the first time to become a costume designer too, and created paper dolls and coloring books to amuse myself and to sell.

But then I found the computer to be rather all-consuming as I learned to use graphic programs that replaced the lightbox with layers, my paints and pencils and markers with hex codes. Coming back to drawing the “old fashioned way” has been a lot of fun! Click on a thumbnail image to see the larger version.
