100 Days Project

jeni: A scribble a day and things/people I love

A series of small sketches with watercolour wash, to see how good I can get at it after 100 days of practice. I started a while ago and for a few days I had gusto and enthusiasm, but as with previous hobbies, once I started being critical and disappointed, I lost confidence and stopped bothering. I might add a journal entry here and there, but for the most part it will be the pencil and the watercolour. I am looking forward to the discipline that commitment - to the 100 Days Project - brings out in me. I have way better staying power with a bit of a push.

Day 14:

Rainy day

What is up with today?? JEEEEEZ. Aside from other things, it has rained, hailed and just been generally a crap of a day. So I did this after lunch, sitting at the table, while Billmeister watched Pingu on the laptop. It is the back door etc. Tomorrow's efforts MAY involve me putting some colour on it, but also I think I quite fancy drawing a spade. This took me about 40 minutes, starting with a brief pencil outline then detailed in pen and as I have discovered 40 minutes is just a tad too much time to spend on one drawing, on one day. During this time however, Miss Edith had a nap, which, since she woke up at 5am, was lucky (for me). Wine needed.
