I’ve just returned from watching the magic of fireworks! Not only are we celebrating Canada Day today but I’m also personally celebrating my success of doing my daily sketches for half a year with not one sketch missed from the beginning of the year! (You can read more about my project here.) So come celebrate with me!!
Here’s a selection of the daily sketches. Most of them are done in pen and ink. Occasionally I did a sketch in pencil or in ball point pen but there’s only one of each represented here. The sketches have been collaged so you aren’t seeing the whole thing. To see the full sketch and to see all the other daily sketches, go to my Facebook Page.
It has been pretty difficult to get a sketch out every day. Some days, I’m sketching in the last hour before midnight, madly trying to get it finished and posted on Facebook before the day has ended. And I’ve done it so far. Sometimes, it’s a real drudge, other days, a joy. It’s usually easier when I am travelling because all the scenes are new but being at home makes me look deeply into the things I live with everyday. Luckily Cam is usually a willing subject when I can’t get inspired by anything else. (If you know me, you know I have a predilection for figures!
I still have another six months to go. Pretty daunting. Yet I’ve made it this far without missing a day. So I KNOW I can do it especially with you cheering me on.
Thank you for being a subscriber and staying with me on my artistic journey.
PS. This sketch was from a day of frustration!!
