Onedrawingdaily has been encouraging us all to follow his lead and draw every day (http://onedrawingdaily.com/2015/01/29/why-dont-you-start-drawing-every-day-take-the-challenge/). That was my intention with my new pencils and sketchbook when Nina and I began this blog (https://methodtwomadness.wordpress.com/2014/07/31/in-the-news/). I have been drawing a lot more but–I confess–not every day.
I decided to try to spare at least 15 minutes each day and draw the same thing for a week. I pulled out all my old drawing class tricks: don’t pick the pencil up off the paper,
don’t look at the paper while drawing,
draw with your left (or non-dominant) hand. That’s the drawing at the top on the right.
These are not masterpieces by any means, but I’ll repeat once again what one of my drawing teachers told me (after “draw draw draw”). You do 100 drawings and throw 99 out–but the 100th! So…95 to go before I start to worry.
