I started the morning by drawing. I first drew my whole breakfast, and that was hard, not enjoyable; a repeat from the other day. Then I drew just my teapot and tea cup. I enjoyed it a lot more. The difference was I added painting to the second drawing. Got my ink pot and a brush out and shadowed areas, etc. It was much more interesting and engaging to me to add the extra layers to the drawing. And the second drawing turned out much better than the first. I'm discovering that just line drawing really doesn't engage me. After the second drawing I wanted to do lots more. And, as Martha Stewart would say, that's a good thing.
