Bear Lora I just saw your reply to Michelle . In reference to you trying to draw a portrait . I was wondering if you ever used thr grid method . It really helps try googling how to draw using the grid method . Another thing to try is turning the picture upside down. It forces you to stop looking at the person as you normally would. You look more at the shapes and lines and there relationship to each other. Good luck and feel well. Another good meditational art is drawing and coloring mandalas, and zentangles. I don't know if you tried any of these.

Hi lora, I am glad that you are enjoying your adventure into art. Believe it or not, we even have discussions on what to do with the artworks that "aren't a keeper". There's a discussion thread on it in the Beginner's group. A quick tip: when you upload your artwork, if you want a constructive critique do make sure that you ask for one - the more specific you are about what you want as feedback the more likely you are to get value from people's comments. Otherwise people will happily tell you if they like it, but they may not want to step on toes by giving a critique. I hope that makes the whole experience more worthwhile for you. I do look forward to seeing some of your work. Feel free to upload the "non-keepers" as well, if you choose, in some of the groups or forums where you can ask for help with them. Enjoy!
