(both made with watercolor and ink)
A couple of months ago I decided to do the drawing a day thing- It didn't work for me and I should have known better. I was impulsive, as usual. These are my character defects- well, some of them. I can't keep a routine -even though I crave one. I am impulsive and always want to do more than I can.( I guess that's why I can't keep a routine)
The point is that I have 'drawing times' and 'painting times'. I never know exactly how long each will last but I get so absorbed in the phase that I am into at the time, that nothing can move me and nothing else interests me.
I was never really aware of these cycles of work because I never before had to account for them as I do here. In the beginning I saw not being able to fulfil my promise to upload a drawing a day as a big failure, after all so many other artists are doing it. But now that I think of it, I must admit it was a good thing because it just tells me I have to adjust my expectations to my personality and real working rythms. And maybe one day I will find the longed for routine because it will be made just for me. (this was a me-me-me posting- it must have been a me-Tuesday - but to redeem I will post this link to a lovely collection of -what else?-CUPS!)
