Winging it as always

I write the way I draw. I rarely know what I’m about to draw and that is how I write.

I know I’m having a good drawing day when it puts everything else on hold including this post. As I write this I am deciding what it is that I wish to write. Of course there is no reason to tell you that, I could simply edit this part out.

As a reminder I have never claimed to be a writer. I just like to put words on the page.

I guess I’m simply writing for the sake of writing. If you have read this far then I have successfully (intentionally or not) wasted a minute or two of your time.  

You are welcome.

Are you still with me? Perhaps now is a good time to talk about my week of art endeavours. It was a good week, no self-loathing or mind torturing impatience. I took a mental chill pill and ignored myself and proceeded to do what I wanted to do. Perhaps it’s because like a cat my routines are back in place. 

What I did this week (if you care).

As usual I continued with “My Dailies”. My rule is to take an hour or less to complete the drawing. That did not happen, instead I found myself requiring more than an hour per drawing, sometimes as much as two and a half hours. 

Why was that? Normally I tend to draw with ink first. This week I decided I would sketch with pencil first then do the inking. Also, I would concentrate drawing in two point perspective rather than one-point. No rulers though, I’m not that precise. Of course with pencil I can erase, so yep, that was what increased the drawing time.

I may as well show a couple of those drawings below. If you are one of my Instagram followers then you have leaped into the future/present to see what is coming in 134 days or so.

Digital Colourization

Nothing to see, okay nothing to see here because I’m putting nothing here. Actually I did quite well with my digital experiments. However, I’ll save that for next week. If I can keep the momentum going I should have some decent examples to show.

There you go, I have nothing left to say, I probably do but it’s time to move on. Have a great week, warm weather is just around the corner (unless where you live is forever warm — lucky you).

And for email readers you can have a look at the header, yep I “winged” it.

Header – I winged it!
