Door 6Doors are one my favorite subjects to draw and this one comes from the historic neighborhood where I live.  While walking the dogs, I took a snap shot on my cell phone and used it as a visual reference.  I actually drew the image and rendered it while traveling in the car.

Creative Strategy: Always work to finish a drawing.  You will notice from the photograph below, the proportions of the door in my drawing are not quite correct.  My inner critic is a strong voice as I am working on a drawing and I have learned to ignore these negative comments. My goal is not to get discouraged while creating an image, to keep going and to finish it.  I even find the image looks much more successful the next day.  What about you?  Are you able to move forward and finish a drawing that you start?  Does the drawing look more successful when you review it later?

  1. I am much more critical when I’m in the process of creating. The more time that passes, the more I like a project!

      Thank you for your comment. I am totally with you on this. I have learned to “wait and see” before I dismiss a piece that I am working on. Is this interesting. Take care – Stephanie

  2. I really like this. It’s simple, raw, detailed, whimsical all at the same time!
