A Drawing a Day – Week 6

Week 6 draws to a close and I find myself pondering how my day now revolves around the activity of producing ‘a drawing a day’.  It is almost the first thing I think about in the morning, and it hovers in the periphery of my consciousness until, either the drawing is done, or I have decided when to do the drawing.  It’s not a problem; it is just something that must be fitted into the jigsaw of my day.  Some days are easy, like Friday when I do my life drawing class, some are more difficult when there are lots of external commitments that pull on my time.  Anyway for what it is worth, here are this weeks offerings – you get two for the price of one on life drawing days!

A Drawing a Day – Week 3

Well I’m keeping up with the daily drawing but it is impacting on my other drawing……..it seems that I can only manage so much drawing a week, but I am enjoying the discipline of having to go upstairs and sit down and draw, in fact I look forward to it.  It has been helpful recently to have an activity that can stop my mind thinking about STUFF! Drawing brings its own concentration and intensity and there is no room for anything else and that is a blessing and relief. I am noticing too the turning of the year, although at the moment it is bitterly cold, spring is not far away and the plants are showing this to me.  The snowdrops, aconites and hellebores are all back, my winter friends – I draw them every year (note to self….dig out the old drawings and see if I have made any progress, or maybe not….. I might be very disappointed………..).
