One of my goals for this year was to complete the '75 Day sketch Challenge'.
This involves sketching one thing every single day for 75 days and going straight in with pen - no pencil allowed!
One reason I rarely sketch is that I've always been far too pedantic about it, caring far too much about the result.
But sketching isn't about perfection at all...
To me, the idea of sketching is to simply exercise the hand to eye coordination and not to worry too much about the finished page.
...And to have fun!
So, I made my self an extra rule that all of my sketches should be completed in anything from under five minutes and up to 15 minutes maximum!
Today is day 48 and rather than bombard you with all 48 sketches, I thought I'd just pick a few to share.
Anyway - then I had the idea of introducing 'Sketchy Sundays' to my blog.
This way I can post about my more serious art during the week, but share a fun sketch or two at weekends.
Also, it will keep me sketching when the challenge is over :0)
Sketching like this is a great way of just having a little creative fun... and it's completely private - I mean, who's going to see?
I definitely won't be showing anyone any of mine.. ;0)
