A Drawing A Day – Week 17

This week has been the hardest so far in continuing with a drawing a day, I suspect that like an elite athlete (which I am not – ha ha!) I have ‘hit the wall’.  I have had to work through the pain of forcing myself to sit down and just do it.  I have been my own worst enemy by leaving it until the end of the day when I am certainly not at my best.  There have also been distractions, on Friday I went to the Society of Botanic Artists annual exhibition, which was both inspiring and dull, some stuff is just same old, same old, but some was brilliant.  I particularly liked the paintings made with cut paper by Penny Brown (sadly I cannot find a web link).  We also had a family weekend with children and grandchild visiting so not much time for art.  Life drawing was fun this week with an exercise of drawing without looking at the paper, the results were a hoot but it was a definite practise in looking.
