Sketches from the #adrawingaday project (round 2)

A drawing a day is progressing well.

Still drawing on sticker blanks for #adrawingaday, a regular and simple project for sharpening drawing skills and also, unwinding at the end of the day. While I can’t noticeably see an improvement, hopefully I will be able to look back on this documentation and see it in the fullness of time.

Am finding it a bit easier to drawing what I see, as opposed to what I imagine seeing. Also, drawing what I want, as I visualised it beforehand, not liking what I draw, after the fact. Does this make sense?

Some definite themes emerging, however, I am sure to look back at some previous drawings would be to realise it is more a revisitation of pre-existing themes. Women, plants, fine lines and detail. Small, cramped thumbnail sketches! My old lecturer would roll his eyes at this – he would always encourage me to buy larger and larger papers, to give myself an expanse to create on. He is right!
