First Blog Post!

Hey guys! I'm really excited to start 20 Time. I've never really had this opportunity before, and I'm really excited to try it out. So, when Mr. Provenzano announced the idea, I had no idea what to do first. I wanted to do something amazing, but I didn't know what to do or how. So, I went to Evernote and looked at the blogs from last year, and I found one by Brendan L. His idea was to recreate drawings and to see if he improved his skills at the end of the year. I thought that was a really cool idea because I'm really bad at drawing and I think it would be really useful to improve. And so, I am going to try this crazy idea. I'm pretty sure I'm going to fail, but I shall fail with distinction! Being a proud Canadian, this is what I'm going to try and recreate:

This is my recreation. I'm actually pretty happy with it. It took me about 15 minutes and I think I could've shaded or worked on the stem a little bit, but overall, not bad I think. One of the most difficult things was getting it to be symmetrical, especially since I tried to draw one side at a time. I think I could've worked harder on the dark line-thingy part on the leaf (dont't judge me, I'm botanically challenged), because it has more lines then the other side. But overall, I'm pretty happy. Hopefully next time, I can spend a little more time on drawing. 

See you next time!
