Here comes the finish line! I didn’t want to accept that I couldn’t draw 7 pictures in 7 days and I have been way too slow the entire week. That’s why I sat down yesterday and drew some sketches really really really fast since I wanted to finish this project on time! Besides, it’s eastern and I really want to spend time with my family in peace without being bothered by knowing that I still have to finish this. Unfortunately, our Internet stopped working right after I was ready to post so the blog entry is coming a little late. So today you get day #7, #6 and #5.
I was in the mood for some color today! As I said before this project is to make me draw every day, no matter what it is and no matter if it ends up being bad or good. Today I drew a little watercolor postcard with lots of water and lots of cursing. You can probably make out the people on the boat if you squint a little and look really closely.
Well, damn me! So much for being productive a whole week straight. Drawing every day was exactly the reason I started this project but I simply couldn’t do it due to my current, very stressful life. But I’m back with day #3 now, two days late but that’s better than nothing in my book!
Welcome to day #2! I must admit I have already started to struggle with the sketching week since I just started to work at my new job today and really have other things in my mind right now. Maybe yesterday wasn’t the perfect time to start this project, but I did it, so I will stick with it!
It has been a constant problem of mine that I am too scared to draw simply because of the fear of failure. Because most of the time a drawing doesn’t end up the way I want it to and then I get really discouraged and don’t even want to pick up the pencil the next time I am thinking about drawing. That’s why I absolutely don’t do it often enough. Even though I really love it, it’s it’s not something that’s a part of my daily or even weekly routine. Art and I have a love/hate relationship but this is something I am now trying to change. I have already talked about this in an earlier post, why you shouldn’t give up on drawing, so if you are struggling with the same problem or are thinking of giving up, feel free to head over there to get some encouragement!
