The Frog Princess is February's fairy tale, and I have been through some guided exercises to find my own stylised princess ready for the first real proper painting assignment. Despite the fact I can't draw I've been doing it anyway, which is kind of liberating. Drawing in pen, where you can't rub anything out, is liberating. I like the princess in the middle, but I can't replicate her hair. I've tried dozens of times. It doesn't matter. My job is just to keep going, to trust that I'm learning something, inching forward into knowledge.
The lavender were copied from Lisa Congdon's 20 Ways to Draw a Tulip. I have an impulse to draw gazillions of them on postcards and send them to gazillions of people.
