Figuring out how to illustrate the story and then practicing drawing that illustration until it is just right is a learning process. It has been hard to figure out when and what can be done. My husband keeps telling me to stop over scheduling. (He knows me so well.) His advice has been to just do what I can do each day and be happy with that. Tough advice to follow.
Ready to be finish. It is frustrating not to be faster. Minimal experience drawing, or painting of any kind other than by the numbers is leaving me feeling intimidated. It is scary and exciting to do something new and different.
