Sketching June 5






















Doing a daily painting has been so rewarding for me.
I am much more creative and happy and motivated, plus I've
built up a big body of new work.
So moving forward into summer, I am going to start a new challenge
which I hope I can turn into a habit. How many days does it take
to form a new habit? Maybe 60 or so....? I'm going to sketch
at least 1 spread a day in my sketchbook. It's something I regret
not doing for so many years. Simple or complicated, whatever
I have time for. I also want to play with photoshop so I will use the daily
page to practice and play.

These are fun! I really like those loose ink lines and the different tones. Great start so far!

Good on you...I've been meaning to do this for ages too. Have I started? No, always a million excuses. You're right, it's all about creating new habits by being consistent. Looking forward to seeing more!

Thanks Jen! I just want to play and experiment. I'm always impressed with your sketching, I haven't gotten that far yet...

I know Carla, that's why I'm going "public"! It makes me feel accountable.

Ooh, these are great! Lovely loose style! This is the kind of thing I need to practice - loosening up a bit and filling sketchbooks.. very inspirational, I look forward to seeing more!

Congratulations on your new habit! Terrific loose sketch and I really love the layout of colors you chose.

I totally understand what you're saying about your new habit! I started mine (daily art, or at least 5-6 days) almost two years ago now, and it was hard at first but so rewarding! If you're going to be posting so much I'll have to drop in more often. :)

Love the colour and the freedom to your new sketches. I love my Mac and Photoshop but you still can't beat getting out your pens, pencils and paints! :)

Cindy and Amanda, you are both so prolific, I'm glad it's been so rewarding for you, I can see that it makes a huge difference to just DO something everyday.
It's always so great to see the amazing digital skills you have Amanda!
