I’m getting used to my new daily drawing habit, with 17 consecutive days under my belt so far. As the first few days are still fresh in my mind I’ll admit it wasn’t easy to start my daily sketchbook appointment. So, if you’re contemplating daily drawing, but aren’t sure you’ll keep it going, here are a few suggestions to help you over the first few hurdles:
*Choose a simple subject that you’d be happy to keep drawing over several days. I started with a mini still-life of golden yellow plums on a chocolate brown saucer.
*Keep the subject small so you can move it if you need to. As my plums were on a saucer, I could pop them in the fridge overnight, and set them up when I was ready to draw.
*Use a media you’re comfortable with for your first piece. I started with a simple collage and drew over the top, so I could explore colour and line in a fun way.
Look out for a few more tips next week!
