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 74:


So tired that I'm just going to upload this little sketch I did of Myke while I was glued to the telly. He wasn't posing, I was just trying to do a familiar face from memory. I've drawn his face a bit over the years but not much recently. It is quick and rough but it is all I can muster today after being up last night with spewy food poisoning, and home all day with my sick bubbas. They have been so patient with being sick and couped up at home! 

The trouble with working so hard on some of my other drawings is that I've set a higher calibre for myself than I probably should have, and it just doesn't feel right putting up things I would otherwise not show people. But as Emma said in her FB post, it's not all about striving for perfection (not saying my stuff is perfect, I sure know it's far from it, just that I put a lot of effort in!). And sometimes just the little effort has to count.
