the bad bridges


I am frustrated with this challenge # 174 to draw a bridge -- I may try a different view or an entirely different bridge --But... I decided to post these attempts because I think they are failures -- I have been telling my sister to start drawing because its about the process not the end product and you can't become a good artist without practicing

If I just post things that turn out well and are easy for me it would make me look better than I really am -- I bet I spent at least an hour trying to do this bridge without success - so here are my not so good bridges I think I'll visit other blogs and see if I can see how it might be done -

They are GREAT bridges! I drew some shoe blobs - I really hated them. Lots of people liked them a lot. Good for you on posting what you think isn't good enough. I guarantee you're being too rough on yourself. A lot of us are too rough on ourselves. It's almost as if accepting what we do is more difficult than doing it.

Now, having told you these things I need to remember them next time I don't like what I draw.

Don't give up - your stuff is wonderful.

the photo reference is there to hide the worst of the bad bridges

Bad bridges, good bridges...I'll bet you learned something from every one of them. Personally they all look great to me, just different approaches...hush up that inner critic!

These are good bridges, and I like how you did each of them differently. I also like the pastel ones, BOTH of them. Yes, you are setting high standards for yourself, but what you are doing is really very good. Be encouraged!

I like your sketches, they seem so easy to me, but I know it's patience, time and patience!!! :)
Good job:)
