Some months ago my girlfriend gave me a small metal box with pencils and crayons. That made me try to learn to draw one more time. The initial drawings were just exercises on tonal values and composition. I also tried to learn to see the light reflected by objects and also the shadows. I also refreshed geometrical concepts on perspective and vanishing points. But above all I practiced, practiced, and practiced.
I posted some of those initial drawings on Flickr. I wanted to share the drawings with her and also to keep track of them. Someone recommended to me to keep recordings of the songs that I was practicing while I was learning to play guitar, so I could realize my progress. I guess the advice can be extrapolated to drawing and painting, too.
This blog keeps the same aim. But a blog also allows a better organization of the contents by means of categories and pages, and new materials such as texts and comments, posts summaries, links to related sites, and so on.
