A new week, a new skill.

Hi everyone,

How is your Sunday? I have been on Skillshare for a while now and have been using it to learn little tips and tricks. But only recently after a few posts on Social Media, I realised I must use it to learn simple art and try small lessons, one every fortnight or week, as time permits πŸ™‚

So this week, this what I did. I watched “Drawing Cute” by Vivika Vaina. Β It is just 11 minutes long and absolutely lovely! Ofcourse you don’t need to be “good at drawing” to do this. And I thought it would make a wonderful way to spend holidays with kids or just even churning out dozens of elephants or pandas from your table when bored or maybe make your own prints or greeting cards or bookmarks or illustrations on little post-its for your friends – your imagination is the limit!

Anyway, I did it because I haven’t been doodling or drawing for over a couple of months now. It isn’t just therapeutic for me but rather a way to come up with solutions to challenges and just totally relax my mind, as I want. I started with this class this morning and have already finished 30% of my to-do list now. I hope this doesn’t become a cheat post because I really did want to share. Even if one of you finds this interesting and gives it a go, then I consider this useful.

Just to tempt you further this is what I did as the class went on, so I spent like 15-20 minutes in all including colouring it πŸ™‚

Which one would you adopt? πŸ™‚
