Today I try to draw a bird.

I’m going to toot my own horn for a second and just flat out say that I’m a pretty good crafter. I have some  basic artistic skills and the ability to take whatever you put in my hands and figure out what it wants to be or be part of.

What I am not is a good artist. I’m not even passable when it comes to drawing, but I want to change that. While you can put something in front of me and I can sometimes produce a decent version if you give me enough time, for the life of me I can not sketch out something in my head. That’s ok though, there is always room for improvement and certainly learning.

To work on this, I have a board on Pinterest called Do a doodle doodle dumb doddle do where I pin examples and tutorials. Every day or so I try a few of them and thought I’d share today’s attempt with you:

Doesn’t look to hard!

Here’s how it turned out.

Um, yeah. It’s a start? I know it’s not bad, but it felt very forced. Perhaps with practice I can make it a little cuter and less stickinthemudd like.

Are you learning how to do something new? How’s it going?
