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 6:

Retaining wall behind the peach tree

I'm not 100 per cent sure why I picked this subject matter, but I had been thinking about it since this morning. Perhaps because I'm proud of the way I keep it, considering when we moved into this place you couldn't even tell it was there, for the jasmine and bracken and other mess hiding it away. Perhaps because it is what I see everyday looking out of our back door (there's not much to be seen). And I've always had a strange fondness for concrete bricks. Weird, huh.
