My World Drawing Challenge – Wk 3 Round-up

Week 3 already and a lot is going on in my world. firstly I am loving my daily drawing challenge, even the days when I have been working on something else and it getting late, the commitment is made I must draw something everyday and I do with surprising results. I do love to draw and even after 3 weeks I am improving. Yay!! It’s all about practice.

So this week I have been working on my Journal cover for Bootcamp which I have been enjoying so much , lovely and supportive group and it gets me out of my comfort zone, from the initial brief and the colour palette. I promised myself that I would stick with the colour palette given as I tend to go with ones with colours I like. I will post the finished piece in next weeks update.

This week I pushed myself and drew my first self-portrait in over 10 years!!!! it was a very hard thing to do but also quite liberating , looking at yourself in such detail is an eye opener. I will be doing more, I thought 1 a month is reasonable.

I love drawing  Mandalas, very good way to calm the mind, and to draw without any idea how its going to turn out. its just about the process :)

Thank you so much for reading this, creativity is so important in our lives, it makes us feel good and takes us away and puts us in our own little world.

I am blessed and happy that I have finally made time to follow my creative path and I am so excited, who knows what is just around the corner 🙂
