Slowly but steadily your observational skills will increase, and your drawings will improve. It’s possible that you’ll discover a hidden artistic talent, and start to experiment with different media – like the watercolor additions in the photograph, something that has morphed from colored pencil, to watercolor pencil, to watercolor sketches.
And no matter what, you will be creating a document that is utterly and absolutely yours; something no one else has ever seen.
