Sunday: Today I am a sculptor. Working on high lights! Funnily enough two people instantly replied with the words “Don’t Blink!”, one on twitter and one of facebook. Yay for Doctor Who references.
No drawing for Monday because I was in a super full train. I did have a place to sit, but taking out my art supplies for a drawing felt like it would get in the way of others.
Tuesday: A star tattoo. Of course I only realised the thumbnail should be facing forward with this pose when I was just about finished. Oh well, this is how I learn. And I really should watch my own hands more.
Wednesday: Hair closeup imaginary polaroid. Watercolour pencils in my Moleskine sketchbook. I only have a few pages left and then I’m starting a new sketchbook. I got a travel journal by hahnemuehle, I hope I’ll like the paper! The lady in the shop let me try out some water colour pencils and a copic marker on a test sketchbook. I like the structure of the paper for pencil drawings and water colour pencils, for copic markers it will suck up a bit more ink than I would like, but I can still use them. I’m currently really focused on the drawing and erasing and using water colours, so that was the most important factor to consider.
Thursday: Were you the kid that drew on the walls? I wasn’t as far as I know. So here I am drawing on imaginary walls! This #commutedrawing fills up the last page in my Moleskine sketchbook, next week will be the start of the new one. I’m curious to see how the different paper will feel once I’m actually working on it every day.
It’s a little crazy how fast I went through my sketchbook once I started this commute drawing project. Before that it had lasted me for years. I used a different sketchpad for my daily drawings last year (which I kept up for a month), because they were practice sketches from an instruction book. My sketchbook generally holds more completed drawings and paintings. I like how I’ve found a nice middle ground with the imaginary polaroids and other drawings I’ve made in this project.
