You Can Draw !

He that abideth in me, and I in him,
the same bringeth forth much fruit:
for without me ye can do nothing.
- John 15: 5

So after you have done some imitation, you can take the step to draw from life.
"This is the bridge." I thought. Somehow, after drawing this line, my fear disappeared. Quickly I put down the mountains, the banks, the river and the boats.... After a while I finished the drawing and showed it to Father. He said, it was not bad. I also thought it was quite nice.

|If you feel afraid to go out sketching, find a friend to go with you. If you don't like to be bothered by passing people, look for a quiet and solitary place. If you don't know how to draw the first stroke on your paper, draw the first stroke in whatever way. After the first stroke, you will get the idea how to draw. No matter what, take back one or two drawings every time you go out sketching. Later you will always congratulate yourself for them.|
