Maria: What would you like to paint.
Me: I don't know. I haven't painted for a long time and I used to get a D in art class.
Maria: It's ok, perhaps we can start by drawing with charcoal?
Me: (Not sounding convinced at all) Okee.
Maria: here, draw this marble head. Why not the vase and fake flowers as well?
Me: -_-" serious?
2 hours later, I left the studio with this drawing (painted with pastel) in my hands, feeling a tad more confident.
Let's see what happens 4 weeks later.
