The 90 Day Sketchbook Challenge has come to an end. I’ve learned a lot about myself and the subjects I’ve drawn. I’ve learned that I can draw: when I don’t feel like it, when I don’t have time, when it’s hot, humid, crowded, and when I’m tired and don’t feel 100%. I can’t draw when I’m violently ill.
Drawing helps me be “in the moment” and enjoy where I am instead of just recording beauty (via photograph) and moving on. There is beauty everywhere, even in the mundane, even in my own yard. Drawing man-made subjects was fun also; but I’m drawn to color, which generally means flowers, and insects and their lives. Drawing from life and outside is a challenge that I enjoy. Watercolor and ink ended up being my go-to media and I think I enjoyed sketching out of my small book the best as it was the most portable.
I hope you have enjoyed coming along with me on my journey. Here’s this last week’s sketches. Enjoy!
