I do quite a bit of teaching, to adults, and many have a big problem with drawing, they feel that they can’t draw and that when they try, they get very demoralised because “it isn’t perfect”.

They also don’t realise that even professional artists don’t get perfection every time we put pen to paper, or even most of the time. I started drawing from a sheep skull earlier today and the first one (below) was a bit rubbish. But instead of giving up, I turned over a new page and started again, scribbling away with a ballpoint pen and producing something I’m happier with.
