*I draw and paint with my finger on the iPad screen, rather than use a stylus.
Drawing can be a great place to escape to – a quiet, solitary place – where all seems right with the world.
I had a happy childhood, yet sometimes I found many things overwhelming, and drawing (or escaping into a book) helped me cope.
When I turned to other less healthy ways to cope with life, I still drew; and when I nearly didn’t have a life at all, I continued to draw. When God saved me in my twenties – I drew and I drew and I drew….
Quite a few years back, I wrote a poem, called “Creativity”; following, is a line from it.
“We can’t escape our Maker’s mark; from Whom comes our creative spark”.
Whatever field or form that may take…
So thankful to Jesus Christ, for my wonderful life.
As I continue to draw, and explore various media; and share some of my journey here – I hope you find my posts encouraging for your own drawing adventures.
Below are some links to some interesting sites, about drawing.
On the above site, in the menu there is a link to the another site called The Big Draw. Here is a link to one of it’s pages; on which is a great video called “The Importance of Drawing” well worth watching.
“Learning by Drawing”. An article on a site called Australiasian Science.
Whether on iPad, android tablet…or paper – have fun drawing! 🙂
