My plan was to finish a piece every day, but it failed badly. I was not even able to draw or paint every day. I was on vacation, felt sick, worked a week in night shift, so I simply did not have the energy.
Today is the 20th day of the 30 day period, and as I counted I have 10 finished drawing/sketch/painting. Which is my personal record.
I can suggest to everyone who is a little under-motivated in practicing to try this challenge. What this changed for me:
- Now I feel that I became brave enough to continue a piece even if I figured out that it will be not good enough. It is practice, it has not to be a masterpiece.
- Because of the above statement I enjoy drawing so much more as I do not concentrate on the perfectionism and the result anymore, but I just flow with the joy of creating something 🙂
- I try to manage my time to make more leisure time to draw and paint.
- Drawing and painting has became an every day habit for me and this is such a good feeling.
Thanks for reading, have a great creative day ^ ^
This was day #4, but I just finished it today, I just had time to sketch that day.
Graphit on white paper, edited with Photoscape.
As I see, on lots of days I only got time to sketch.
Day 3 comes first, it is much better, day 2 was just a chair sketch with graphit.
Aquarelle practice based on a reference picture which I found on the net, origin unknown.
Day #2 Continue reading
Let’s draw/paint every day!
I’ll try a 30 day challenge first and if it goes well and I can (have the time/energy/motivation) create a piece every day, then I’d like to try a 500 day one 🙂
It would be important to us who want to learn to draw/paint to practice every day.
First picture is my first aquarelle still life. Now I’ll run to the hobbystore, to buy very thick aquarelle paper as this one not thick enough.
I loved this book which a Hungarian writer Erzsébet Kertész wrote about Elizabeth Barrett Browning ❤
I made this sketch based on the book cover around 2001-2002
Have a great day! 🙂
I cannot believe that my autogramm was way cooler then, than now :O
