Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.
Sketching. It’s happening. It was good, then I got busy and it got shoved to the back burner, that’s what happens when you’re not completely there. But I want to be, and I know part of it is just about getting into a routine and just doing it, so I did two things.
I counted how many pages I had left in my sketchbook and figured how many sketches I needed to do in a day in order to meet my goal of filling a sketchbook by the end of October. Then I set a couple alarms on my phone so I have that reminder, twice in a day, that sketching needs to be a part of my day. And guess what? It’s working! I’m sketching more frequently and filling these pages, it’s brilliant.
The other day I found myself with a few minutes to fill between class letting out and meeting up with a friend. I pulled out my tools and got to sketching and came up with this brilliant little fella. I’m in love. Now I need to get him onto canvas.
Plus a while ago on my FB Page I asked people what their favourite animals are. I got some great animals named and now I’d love to branch out and see some of them come out in the pages of my sketchbooks. It would give me a great idea of a few more critters to paint.
So, it looks like I’m on track for filling this book. And that makes me happy. Time to start looking for a new book I suppose.
