I had a certain level of rendering ability ground into me the first 2 years of art school, but anything 2 dimensional remains an awkward medium at best. Drawing often feels like I'm trying to write something down with my off hand, with the paper on a table behind me. I keep a sketchbook, but it's not a thing of loveliness.
Two dimensional work always leaves me feeling (NO PUN INTENDED) flat and disappointed. Love the sculptural aspects of working in clay.
