I have been trying to just draw the shapes of the lace out in the front. I am not really concerned with anything else behind the basket really but the front it important. I start to draw it then erase it. Draw it then erase it. The trouble for me is that I have been trying to draw the actual "white" shapes! Instead of just drawing the dark shapes. I could not figure out what my problem was. I was drawing and drawing and thinking "have I lost my touch? I can not seem to figure out the easiest way to do this". So tonight I just stopped trying and relaxed and just let it all come natural and I started to search for the less amount of information and drawing it and the lace is coming together just fine now. I have done two other photo challenges through this artist (who is really quite good) and I enjoyed them and they came out very well. I believe you all remember this one -
And then this is the second one that I did. So this other one will make my third.
Anyway - I just want to do the lace again. I want to see if I can pull it off again. I remember the extreme struggle that I had with the first one and now I want to see if it is the same struggle or if It comes easier this time around. This lace is much more complex that I am working on.
