Week 7 – My World Drawing Challenge

When I started this blog I was not sure what to do and I realise that still don’t, So I need to spend more time and care with my posts, as not having a website yet, this is where people come and visit and frankly it needs some love and care!!So for the month of March I will start updating my blog and making more interesting. (fingers crossed)

I will be sharing my love of plants and growing things as I get my balcony ready for spring, this year I will growing loads of flowers , for inspiration for my pattern designs and drawings. I get so much pleasure from watching things grow, nature is truly wonderful, I love my life to be surrounded by plants indoors and out. I had a big tidy up and sort of my balcony, the sun was shinning and it felt good to be out their pottering around. I call it my garden in the sky and feel very blessed to have some where I can make my own.

I have had a very busy and creative week,but feel I am really getting int the swing of my daily drawing challenge and its become something I do, it’s not a chore but a lovely part of my day just to sit and draw whatever I want.

Day 43 My World Drawing Challenge
Day 43 – Still drawing the chairs, they are so hard and have really taxed my brain at times, but this is a challenge and so I keep going.
Day 44 Myworld Drawing Challenge
Day 44 – sometimes I just draw with no idea or real thought, I find it a great way to relax a form of creative meditation, and I just love plants and flowers, they will always be a massive inspiration and part of my world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back to chairs, I have always struggled with scale and I want things to fit on the page but they seem to get bigger, with time and practice It will get better!!

To end the week I have drawn a Mandala, I discovered Mandala drawing a few years  ago and its helped me so much,I am more creative and confidence in my abilities,      I learnt it’s not about the end result but the proses of making a Mandala that is  important. They care a great way to calm the mind and help you to relax!

  1. Hey amanda, if its any constilation I’m the same with my blog at times. Sometimes I’m not sure what to post, write or whether people enjoy what I post. More than anything though you’ve gotta enjoy what you post and enjoy reading it yourself , that way if you find what you wrote boring it may need a bit of tweaking till you do enjoy and get excited reading it :). I’d definitely get a website up soon though! You produce so many lovely drawings and illustrations ( far more than me puts me to shame I need to dedicate more time to draw like you!) I think you’d have plenty to create a beautiful website my creative friend x If you ever need any tips or help just pop over an inky message and I’ll help if I can x katie x

    1. Good morning
      Thank you so much for you comments and good advice, I do struggle with writing but the more I do it the better it will get.
      I am really enjoying my daily drawing, I can see my improvement.
      I am going to write a post and try and get other people to join in a daily drawing for the month of March, you should do it .
      I must sort out my website, not sure why I am putting it off.
      Thanks again have a creative week. 😊
