It’s the end of my 2nd year of daily drawing YAY ME! 💚💚
I am rather proud of myself 2 years of daily drawing ,ready for year 3
Here are a few pictures and a short post about my love of daily drawing.
DAILY ART IS NOW PART OF MY DAILY LIFE
Daily sketching of people has been such good fun, really enjoyed experimenting and trying new things and letting myself go on paper, my confidence as an artist grows every year, it’s because of my daily drawing it is really true, it’s all about practice.I really love being like this,making art daily keeps my mental wellbeing in check ,it’s an outlet for how I feel, much better than losing myself in a beer or 3
I am not saying that every day I leap out of bed and make my daily sketch sometimes the day runs away and I get in to a slight panic of knowing it has to done, but I always manage good or bad just make art its liberating , thankfully those days don’t happen often. I look forward to sitting down taking time out for myself and drawing .
So pleased I chose sketching people this year it’s been worth it and feel so much more confident of my abilities, still can’t quite manage to sit in a cafe and draw people, but can confidently get out my sketchbook and draw . I don’t worry about what people think.. I love being an artist it’s my life 💚💚
I HAVE BECOME MORE MINDFUL – this has been so helpful in dealing with a challenging year, remembering to take time and just be.Living by the sea is so wonderful any time of the year and the sea always calms,invigorates and rejuvenates and so much more. But I have decided that I need more trees in my life,so will be exploring woods and forests in 2017.
