I love drawing!
Hello everyone! I want to take a minute to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about this website.
I’m Tina and I love to sit and draw (or sketch as I have learned can be viewed as different from drawing). I also love to spend time with my family and pets, read (so many books, so little time), putter with my flowers, play piano and listen to music.
I enjoy a crackling fire, the quiet of nature at rest, and I listen for the whisper of God.
I am a practiced “beginner” of Drawing
I’ve doodled for as long as I can remember. A little over a year ago I decided to buy a “How to Draw” book and learn how to draw. I have to confess that I have sketched during church, at long school functions in between watching my kids, at large gatherings (I’m a wall flower!) and many more. To me, drawing is one of those fun and calming outlets.
What tools do I need?
I have a simple sketch book, some mechanical pencils, and an eraser that stay with me just about everywhere I go.
Now I also have quite an assortment of other sketch tools (other cool lead pencils, colored pencils, blenders, different textures of paper…).
I have an abundance of pictures of “things to sketch” that I store on a memory card on my electronic reader, which also goes everywhere with me. I’m always snapping pictures of things I want to sketch sometime in the future.
Why should I Draw?
For FUN! I’ll never draw my way into earning a living. That doesn’t matter. It’s fun. I give my drawings to friends and family, or I just keep adding to my pile of filled sketch books. I may try to sell some at a craft fair some day, we’ll see.
I want to help you enjoy drawing as much as I do. I’d like to help you gather some resources to take you into the fun of textures and shading and drawing things you never imagined you could draw. Take a look at some of my drawings.
Enjoy the adventure. If you have questions or just want to share something with me, leave me a message. I’d love to see your sketches!
