Well, the good news is that I’ve been drawing every day since I started my challenge. The bad news is that I haven’t quite filled a page a day. Still progress though, and I did have good reason for being a bit slow.
My partner had one of his bikes stolen on Friday so we had police round over the weekend and I wasn’t my calmest on Saturday to sit down and draw. What I should have done is shading and texturing because the rhythm of that is just amazing at calming me. But I was starting a new sketch of a horse, and I just got grumpy because the outline was all jagged and tensed up. I didn’t stop to think “how can you relax yourself and draw too. My critical mind jumped all over the sketchpad instead. Critical mind can’t even draw curtains. The horse it attempted looked like a cow after a nuclear accident so I put it out of its misery. Learned my lesson though.
Anyway, here are 2 scans from the sketchbook. The first horse on the second sheet actually looks like the kind of freaky horse I drew as a kid. I think he was Saturday’s freak horse come back to haunt me. Glad it’s not Halloween!
