So exciting! In today’s video, the very first calendar giveaway winner is announced. I will be doing one of these videos every month in 2017, which means 12 of you who have purchased a Solid Gold calendar will be winning one of my original goldfish drawings this year. I’ve done a lot of drawing videos in the past, but this one is different, and not just because it also includes a giveaway. 😉 In this video, you can watch me draw while I give you tips and pointers so you can learn how to draw goldfish like an expert too! I’ve been drawing since before I can remember and I went to college for studio art. Out of all my fine arts classes, the drawing classes were always my favorite.
I sometimes find it tough to get started on a new drawing (which is why I don’t do it as often as I should) but once I do get started, drawing is a great way for me to “zen” out and get my (sometimes frantic) mind to slow down for a minute. I’ve just realized that 2017 is about to be my most prolific year for making art in a very long time, since I will have to do at least one drawing every month for these giveaways. Before today, I hadn’t made any new finished drawings in over a year- so bad! It feels good to be getting back into it. What helps you “zen” out?
