Speed Drawing!

Jonathan had his private lesson today. I had him speed draw from the Basic Proportions video 

We went back over some sections after
the video was over. He took about
12 minutes total. He's 10 years old and in 4th grade.

As he was drawing he kept saying, "Miss Mathews, I can't do it!" & I kept telling him, "You ARE doing it! It looks great, just keep going!" I actually took his eraser away from him because he was trying to be a perfectionist. He cracks me up.

I asked him if he would like to comment on the experience, he said: "It's hard, but
eventually you'll get it."

"Do you think it helped going faster?"
"Were you nervous?"
"Oh yeah!"

Wow, isn't it such a special moment when your student realises that they CAN. He's a talent :)
