Graphite Drawing – Out to Pasture

"Out to Pasture" completed drawing.
The completed drawing. 10″ x 14″

I started this graphite drawing in December of last year.  I steadily worked on it until it was around 85% complete.  Then, doubt entered into my mind.  I didn’t think I had the skill level necessary to complete the work.  So for months this drawing laid in my drawer waiting for me to find the confidence to finish it.  Last week I decided I had procrastinated enough!  So I pulled it out, dusted it off, and got back to work.

Now I have a completed piece!  The sad part is I allowed doubt to sabotage my progress and hold me back.  Sometimes it’s best to charge ahead. You may surprise yourself, you may be more capable than you think, or maybe learning comes from the experience of doing.
