So I posted this photo of a sketch on Twitter/Instagram today and a few people have sent me lovely comments.
I thought I was fairly self-confident but apparently not when it comes to art, and particularly drawing (a long time weak spot that I am trying to improve with practise). Bizarrely, my first reactions to the comments were either 1) they had made a mistake and were actually commenting on someone else’s work that happened to crop up in the conversation after I had posted my photo or 2) it only looked good because it has an Instagram filter on it.
You would think that at my age I would have got over this kind of crippling self doubt, but apparently not. I must post more stuff on Twitter for all to see and you must all be very honest!
