Half way there guys!
So! I have reached my half way point of my 100 day challenge, and it’s been pretty challenging so far!
Inktober put a little dent in my progress, in the sense that I wanted to try and do two drawings a day. Realistically?! that was not going to happen, so in reality I kept to my drawing a day, and then just changed it to go with the theme prompts for the days during inktober. However, my last week of October got a little messed up, as I was also at 2 weddings PLUS I had a long drive up to Norway, so that made it a little harder to post my progress.
ANYWAY its all up now and DONE! Currently, I am just getting back on track (sort of), I may be a few day behind, but I am doing a drawing a day, which I am now starting to like and get into a rhythm with, which I must say is quite nice.
As days get a little shorter here, and colder, it is quite nice to curl up infront the fire and draw away. So that is what I have been trying to do, along with my lazy days where I simply do NOT want to do anything.
However I have tried to to keep them simple and fun, so I don’t have a repetition of Inktober where I felt overwhelmed by it all, along with other daily chores and work that I just had to put it aside and ended up forgetting! (we all have those days).
So today, I’ve been looking back a little, and also I was lucky to find an old scrap book with black pages, which I haven’t tired drawing on befoe in the past, so this was a nice change from the regular blank white pages.
I’ve had this love hate relationship with colour and if you’ve not noticed yet alot of my drawings are pencil and rarely any colour is used. The reason for this is mostly because I love colours so much I just want to throw them all onto the pages and then they end up looking a little mad, so black and white is my safe zone.
Anyway, I have found that the black paper, compliments my madness of colour use, and so! I think I have found a way I can use my colour appreciation in my drawings which is so exciting! I have started with some still lifes, just to get warmed up, and I’m hoping this will evolve into something wonderful, but we shall see!
