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 63:

Tui

Thanks to the internet for its vast photo library ... I wonder, is it ok to upload drawings from photographs which aren't your own? I mean, the picture is drawn, it's not a direct reproduction/ use of the image. I conclude it must be ok. I take my inspiration for this drawing from our noisy (but lovely) neighbourhood tuis, who are going bananas lately. "caw caw" said miss Edith while we were drawing together. 

Well, it is 7.15, the kids are both in bed, I am home alone, my 100 days is done, and holy crap my poor kids were patient with the waiting around for my attention while I toiled over todays effort, they even managed to have fun, thank you Spring for your beautiful afternoon, both for the kids getting to enjoy it and the effect it has on my mood. I even managed to get (a meagre amount) of housework done.
Now, if only I could figure out a way to get paid for copying other people's photos, I would consider myself productive.
I am almost out of paper, which means a trip to an art or craft store or emporium. YAY! I am really determined to get semi-good at dry-brush drawing by the end of this project, and considering I've never tried it before, it's high time I bought some supplies and gave it a crack. Toodle-oo.
