— even more!
Nothing gave me more pleasure last year, than re-discovering the art of sketching and drawing. I have decided to pursue this joyful activity even more in the year to come, and to challenge myself into doing things I’ve never done before. And so I decided to start this year with a Sktchy challenge:
Each morning of the challenge Sktchy send us an email with:
- Drawing tips
- Photos of faces for us to draw
I have never been very drawn to drawing faces, and so I found drawing 30 faces in 30 days a good way to dare myself. I must admit that very few of the photos we receive are portraits that interest me, I find them often rather kitschy or sentimental in an immature kind of way. Even so, I have made a drawing every day, and I have enjoyed every challenge so far.
Here are a few examples of what I have done so far:
I have chosen to work in a sketchbook rather than on loose sheets of paper, letting layout and texts become a part of the project.
