There was a day in class where I became so agitated that I couldn't draw this stupid set of boxes just right. I wanted to walk out and cry. None of it was making any sense to me. The fact that we had begun to use Mondrian lines wasn't helping at all and confused me even more. I know I needed listen to the advice my professor was giving despite the fact that she wears platform flip flops and a toe ring, which makes me really uncomfortable, but I felt like something just wasn't clicking in my brain. Yesterday was when I finally had that "I got it!" moment. We were presented with how to use triangulation in terms of an object's spatial relation to another. I found it much simpler to shift my drawing and make changes as needed that way.
Here's what I ended up with yesterday (that funny thing in the bottom left is the table). Some of the angle lines didn't get onto paper because I was using a measuring stick, but some of them are there. This certainly isn't the greatest drawing but it's such an improvement from last week. I have to say, I'm pretty proud of myself. I'm glad that I was able to overcome feeling lost every time I'd stand at an easel. Now I cannot wait to get back to class to see what we'll be doing next!
