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 49:


Mum came over for the evening, and sat whilst I attempted to do my first ever drawing of her. Is that weird, that I've never tried to draw my mum before? She thought it was good for a first attempt, though I could see she was holding back a criticism or two. Thankfully, she knows me well and didn't offer up thunk criticisms, or I would make tweak after tweak till it was ruined. BTW I am fairly over this project. I liked my chicken of yesterday, so I think I'll do a mouse tomorrow and from then on my subjects/objects may be smaller.
