Everything I do now is essentially practice. I'm still learning to draw well, but I don't always have the time to sit for several hours and practice, cranking out gestures drawings and blind contours.
I use Nikolaides's book to get where I want to be drawing wise. I know a lot of people seem to think that it's taking the long road to not learn much, but for me it works just fine.
I want to produce art , and not wait till I'm "good enough" or something along those lines. So I do.
The title of the next one is - Two Boys. It should be up in several hours.
