I Can Block Out Everything Around Me

I love to draw.  I can block out everything going on around me, I concentrate that much on it.  I have to have something to look at, either a picture or a true landscape.  I wish I could draw from memory like some people but my mind can't see the details of things.  I also erase a whole lot before I get it to look the way I want it to.

I love zoning out into my own little artistic world. It's so calming.

I'm always doing that unfortunately I get detentions for not responding/paying attention

In class

I wish I could get that engrossed in something ... never really have.

hi flowrpower I have been drawing for over twenty five years and only just learnt now to draw from memory , Im the same as you with blocking everything out while drawing , My whole concertration is on that drawing and getting it right . I do too erase alot as well , however dont know if you know this I have learnt it myself You dont draw what you think you see but the shape of what you see. Im doing this and it makes drawing abit more easeir to do . happy drawing
