“If you don’t use it, you lose it.”
Drawing is one of my favorite pastimes. I don’t get a lot of time to draw much these days, and when I do have the time it’s sometimes hard to figure out what it is I want to draw. I like drawing because it gives me a chance to relax while also expressing myself. There isn’t one thing in particular that I like drawing, but many things such as; landscapes, buildings, people, or even just recreating other people’s art. When I first started to draw I think I was a high school student. I use to do it as a way to kill time, but soon I started taking classes for it so that I could improve. Eventually I found myself spending a lot more time and money trying to develop this skill. I would go to the art shop for supplies just so that I could but better material to work with. Once I graduated high school however, all of that changed and I didn’t have as much time to draw like I wanted. Despite this, I still made an effort to try and sketch whenever possible. There’s an English proverb that says “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.” Which means that if you don’t use certain skills you have eventually you will forget how to do it, and drawing is one thing I wouldn’t want to lose. So if there is something you enjoy doing always make time for it or else you might forget how to do it!
Until next time!
