Life Drawing: Letting Go

Sometimes I can hit a state of mind where I just let go, believe is my ability and let the art just flow through me.

Yeah, I know it sounds really cliche but it is actually a thing. Many times when we draw we are so focused on the language that the art of creation is stunted. When I say “language” I mean the technical details such as proportion, anatomy, form, line, etc..

I focus on the technical so much so eventually I can forget them and it comes naturally. Today I was able to send all the technical language the background and just create.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
