In the very short class I took with you earlier this year, you really liberated me from feeling like I need to draw perfectly. I started by looking at bits and pieces of shapes and shadows and not thinking so much about a bird. It was super relaxing because I wasn't constantly criticizing every pencil stroke, more just having fun and wondering if my drawing would fit on the page. :) Making it look three dimensional is hard for me. Really seeing the lines, the fluff, the feather contours came easily. I would not have noticed how much dark smudgy coloring is on this little Warbler if I hadn't been drawing it.
