As much as I’d like to draw every day, I just refuse to force it and, instead, wait for wu wei to provide some inspiration.
Sometimes, I draw from life while other times from photos. Either way, I wait till something about an image touches me, inspiring me to capture it.
It’s getting easier to draw people. Even though my sketches aren’t perfect renditions of the subjects, the more I do them, the more confident I feel.
Still, each time I start, I’m certain that I’ll never be able to capture what I see.
Afterward, when I look at what I’ve drawn, I realize that, if nothing else, what I have captured is the inspiring spark that got me to reach for the pencils.
