How to Draw a Rose

Drawing has always been something I loved to do and it actually can be quite therapeutic. 
I know what your thinking. 
"I can't draw a stick man"

But fear not. Practice makes perfect.  IT IS IN YOU! 
And you won't produce something like we see here above.

For this project, I'm going to send you over to art-is-fun.com to learn how to draw a rose.  My art teacher from a drawing class at a local college I went to always told me, "The more detail in a subject, the easier it is to do."  It took me a while to even comprehend that because detail is scary or risky.  But as I practiced drawing a crumbled up brown paper bag.  I realized that if I left it uncrumbled, it was harder to fill in shadows realistically.  Then when she grabbed the bag and crumbling it up more, {after I gasped} it was easier because I discovered that every line and shadow I made turned into a way to get a free pass for the work!  When I was drawing every nook and cranny, it was easy for me to turn the pencil which ever way I wanted.  And that made for an easier project.

So, go check out art-is-fun.com, and challenge yourself to draw this rose.  If you complete one, and your particularly proud of yours, email it to me and I will post it in my gallery.

I soooo believe in you!
