Unfortunately I have no time to practice drawing further until 20th of April 😦 As this is the last due date when my thesis can be accepted at university, so I really have to complete it somehow. I started it 7 years ago (not studying, but writing the thesis…), stopped a few times for months, years. Last time 3 years ago, because although I finally collected 80 participants who filled in my questionnaires, but then I had a very hard time with the statistics, which is still incomplete.
So I will post some of my early drawings again.
But from 20th of April I WILL BE AS FREE AS A BIRD, I cannot wait. This thesis has a very wrong influence to my soul, but it needs to be done, unless I will only have a high school degree despite of the 6,5 years at Uni.
UPDATE1, April the 20th: and a few more weeks. It would not be me if I could finish this until the due date. Unbelievable. And I can only hope that they would accept it late. But the good news are that I am not alone with this amazing amount of procrastination, turned out that 3 of my classmates are in the same position.
UPDATE 2, May: the thesis got completed, accepted!! 😀 Only a little final step is left, the dissertation defence in June yayyy! And finally I have time to paint!
UPDATE 3, June the 18th: 2 more days until thesis defence, then I’ll be totally FREE (except the work of course xD)
CC. 2001-2004? *Not all is my own character. As I remember the following are my own idea: puppy, sad bird, giraffe (not proud), pig, cat, bunny and in the front the grasshopper
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.
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.
