Day 5 - 60 minutes or less daily artwork

I am really starting to enjoy my commitment to drawing something every day. I started this drawing and it really took off. I like where this is going, and I find that my ideas for the children's story that I am planning are becoming clearer through drawing.

Day 4 - 60 minutes or less daily artwork

Not much to show today. But, in keeping with my idea that this is an exercise to help me towards illustrating better, this works. Two cockatoos. I wonder what he is saying to her.

Day 3 - 60 minutes or less daily artwork

I had no idea where I was going with this drawing. I started with the little girl and it went on from there. Good practice again for illustrating.

Day 2 - 60 minutes or less daily artwork

Day 2 and my found myself drawing a cat on a little card. I painted it with gouache and lined it with pen. This is a cat that I have in mind for a children's story I am putting together for my granddaughter. The more I draw it, the easier it will get.

I ended up drawing this face in pencil on another piece of card. I am always drawing faces in pencil. Unless it's something very different, I am going to try not get too caught up in drawing faces for this challenge.

Day 1 - 60 minutes or less daily artwork

I am absolutely horrified when I see how long it's been since I last posted anything. That means that it has been ages since I painted or drew. In the last week or so I have been trying to draw or doodle a bit more. That brought about the idea to challenge myself for 30 days.

I must draw or paint something every day for a month. Nothing serious, even a little scribble if that is all I have time for. But I must create something... and it must not take longer than 60 minutes.

Life keeps us busy, and even though my daily job as layout artist is in it's own way creative, it is not art.

For the challenge my artworks will consist of drawings or little gouache paintings and there might even be some digital work. The reason being that it is easy to do in between my other work.  And I need to re-ignite my imagination.

So here is my piece for Day 1. Coffee and a doughnut. - Gouache on water-colour paper.
