Looking for a resolution

by Henk ter Heide on Friday May 29, 2009

in Odds and ends

A few days ago I wrote about my problems with self confidence. To solve those problems I tried something that’s completely new for me.

I always have the feeling that everything in the world is interconnected. That you can’t move one thing without moving the whole world.
I’ve been told that is something that’s typical for people who have a visual thinking process.
One of the results of that feeling is that I tend to want to solve all my problems all at ones. It never works but I keep trying.

This time I decided that I should find out what would happen if I solved my problems one at the time. At the moment I have three biggies. I started with the one that annoys me the most and work my way down.

In the last week I’ve all but solved my bowel problems. It turns out to be a paradoxical problem.
I find it very difficult to trust feelings I only partly recognize. But the moment I did it became very easy to trust my feelings.

The second problem is work related.
For the last year I’ve been filing complaints about something that is going wrong in my job and nobody listened.
Thinking about the problem as a self confidence problem I realized that there are two bold moves I can make that will solve the problem. The first one is something simple that will show that I’m not some one to mess with. The second will probably take some months to implement but will solve every problem of this type.
(I tell more about this in one of my next posts.)

The third problem has to do with drawing.
I’ve been thinking about what it is that makes this next drawing so difficult and I must say that I’ve been kind of stuck.
The drawing doesn’t seem that difficult to me. I should be able to just start with it and find which parts of the face I should practice some more.

Not being able to find a solution for the third problem I’ve spend most of my time thinking about the second problem.
While doing so I realized that I was wrong. I don’t have three big problems I have four. I’m not drawing because of the fourth problem.

I never realized it but there is a problem with being both autistic and gifted.
Most autistics are very fanatical with some type of collection or have a, often strange, subject that holds their attention for there whole life.

I’m an autistic of the last type. I need a subject that is interesting enough to spend most of my live reading and thinking about. But being gifted means that there is no subject complicated enough to keep me interested my whole life. Which means that I have to switch subject every 15 to 20 years or so.
I’m about to switch to my third subject; learning to draw as good as is humanly possible.

The problem is that I can’t make that switch without closing the second subject. Or actually without find a way of doing something with what I’ve learned.

From my 19th till my 35th I tried to understand why people consider suicide and the process they go through while they’re considering suicide and how one could save them. After about 15 years it became clear that saving some one who’s suicidal is almost impossible. Even for a psychiatrist.
Knowing that I lost interest.

But my current subject if different. There’s actually a practical use for it. Only thing is that the people who should organize it don’t seem to know. Or maybe they don’t care. In any case I don’t know those people so I’m not able to tell them.
But as I said. I can’t move on without doing something with my knowledge.

So I’ve decided to write a few articles about it on my own blog.
So the new category “odds and ends” will be about everything that interests me that’s not art related.

How to create stenciled streetart

by Henk ter Heide on Sunday May 24, 2009

in video

Some of those streetart pictures are really big. I’ve always been wandering how streetartists would make them.
You would think that some one would notice a streetartist walking around with a 6 feet stencil.

135crew shows how it is done.

It’s not fair

by Henk ter Heide on Sunday May 24, 2009

in Personal

Last week I wrote that I would print out a picture of some actress and draw a portrait of her. But it’s taking a little longer then I expected.
I’ve run into a little printer problem and a big self confidence problem.

This is not the first self confidence problem I’ve had over the last few years. And every time I find that I get very angry with you, my visitors.

I like to compare myself with Vincent van Gogh a famous Dutch painter.
Nowadays his paintings sell for millions of dollars a piece but in his time he wasn’t famous at all. His brother bought a few paintings from him but that was about it. He even checked himself into a madhouse at some point in his live and nobody cared.

That’s far cry from how I feel my live as an artist.
I’m not famous at all but I do have a public that’s waiting for every thing I have to say and every thing I have to show.
Sometimes it feels as though they are like vultures, ever circling.
It’s not fair.

But then after a few days my self confidence problem passes and I realize that I’m the one who’s not being fair…

I’ve bought a new bed.
To make room in my bedroom I have to move a cupboard that for years has been standing in the room. I don’t have any room for it in the rest of my house so I will be throwing it out.

Curiously I opened one of the drawers to find out what was in side and found five sketch pads I’ve filled over the years.

Looking them over I remember why I have this blog.
Every few years I feel creative and buy a sketch pad and draw for a while.
But every time I get at a point where I want to draw something that is a little more challenging then everything I had done up to that point and I’m struck by self confidence problems and stop drawing.

Then after a few months/years I feel creative again and buy a sketch pad and start over again.

That’s why I have this blog.
To feel the pressure of people waiting for my next drawing to force myself to look passed problems. Problems with self confidence or any other type.

This is a drawing I did some years ago. I found it in one of the sketch pads. Although I’m sure I had some kind of idea about it when I drew it, I don’t remember what it was.

Face

by Henk ter Heide on Monday May 18, 2009

in Drawing

This is the first picture in the book by Jack Hamm. Although this is a very bad copy of the picture it’s actually the best face I’ve ever done. Because I now have kind of an idea as to how mouths and hair are supposed to look when you draw them.

The only thing is that it’s not much fun to copy a drawing by some one else.
I think the next thing I’m going to do is print out a bunch of famous faces and try to draw them.

Looking at the drawing I see that I still have a problem with getting the left and the right side of the face symmetrical. At least in part this problem has to do with the fact that I cover the right side of the drawing with my hand while drawing the left side.
Maybe I should start with the left side…

Eye practice

by Henk ter Heide on Sunday May 17, 2009

in Drawing

After discovering yesterday that I had problems with the shape of one of the eyes I had no choice but to practice it.
I found that I was wrong. It’s not easier to draw the eye from the outside corner to the inside corner. It’s easier to draw it left to right and learn to control the pencil enough to get the shape you need.
It does mean that I cover the guiding dots with my hand. But I found that if I imagine the shape I want it works quite nice.

In three sessions during the day I filled two sheets with eye shapes. I was planning on doing a little more but the eye shapes are reasonable regular right now. And this practice run is rather boring.


Eye practice 1

Eye practice 2

Eye problems

by Henk ter Heide on Friday May 15, 2009

in Drawing

I realized that I had forgotten to draw the front view of the ear.
Since it would be a waste of paper to only draw one ear and then move on to drawing the whole face. I thought it would be nice to search the web for a photo of eyes and a nose. So I could do one last drawing of the parts of the face before moving on to the complete face.

But I ran into a problem drawing the right eye.

When I draw eyes I draw a curving line from the outside of the face to the inside. And use two dots to guide myself.
With the left eye (right for the on looker) that means drawing a line away from my hand. So I can see the dot I have to aim at to get the right shape.
But with the right eye (left for the on looker) I draw in the direction of my hand. Which means my hand is covering the dot. So I can’t see what I’m doing.

Of course this isn’t the first time I’ve run into this problem. It’s just that I always thought that I would solve it before it would become a nuisance. Clearly I didn’t.

A well. I can’t think of a solution right now, but I’m sure that I’ll find one if I put my mind to it.
