When you're new to drawing it's a good idea to choose subjects where perfection doesn't matter. 3D folk art is one of my favorites (I am partial to cork duck decoys). I did three drawings of the same fishing lure and deliberately made 2 and 3 wrong to show my workshop students that successful drawings can be made imperfectly.  Feb24  2009 SF
