Obstacles cannot crush me.
~Leonardo da Vinci

Leonardo da Vinci's birthday was this week (April 15th) and someone shared this silverpoint drawing he made, explaining that with silverpoint technique, mistakes are impossible to erase. Once you draw a line, it's staying. That makes me think of Bob Ross's habit of taking artistic accidents and making them part of the picture.


  1. Beautiful image, and I like that idea, leaving the mistake in, I've got a number of art images like that.

  2. Blodges, smudges, whoopsies and hmmmm's are all a part of any art in which I take part. :-)
