I had some appointments today so I didn’t get as much done with my art sessions but I got some great practice in regardless.
What I talk about all the time on my site, and the purpose for my daily art, is that it’s not about doing 8 hours of art a day, or even 2 hours a day. It’s about doing what you can every day and making a commitment that you don’t miss. You can suck, but you can’t miss.
Warm-up and DrawABox exercises
I’m still doing my super awesome warm-up every day.
For my drawabox.com exercises I’m working on what they call rough perspective. Again, I was thinking that this would be no problem and again I find myself eating my words. This is much harder than I thought and a wonderful exercise with instant feedback.
Steve Huston Form Exercise
This was a quick exercise today, I wanted to move onto other projects so I only did one sheet of drawing the figure with basic forms.
One Minute Gestures
I love my gesture studies, especially after I’m a couple pages into it. At that point in the drawings I feel that I can actually let go a bit and flow with the information.
Daily Composition and Daily Sketch
A thermos full of tea and a cat on a fence. I loved seeing this cat balanced on the fence today while eating my breakfast.
