I've always liked art, but when it came time in school to choose music or visual art for electives, I went with chorus. So, I've never had much training in drawing, painting, etc. However, I've always enjoyed creating visual art, and a couple of years ago I realized that I really enjoy drawing with pencil. It's incredibly relaxing to watch a picture come alive in front of my eyes on the page as I draw, smudge, shade, and erase. Here are some pencil drawings by my untrained hand.
