Recently I shared that I had started Sketching Again. I decided to keep my Mom’s Nature Journal and sketchbook out on my desk as a visual reminder, and I try to spend about 20 minutes daily sketching and painting in time squeezed between folding laundry and preparing dinner.
I was particularly happy how my first watercolour portrait came out, but I am not including the second portrait I did of my other daughter because it was so completely off that it would be a huge injustice to her if I posted it. Portraits are really tricky!
I enjoyed creating all the details in “Popping bubble wrap” and felt good about the painting of the hands in “Rock., Paper, Scissors”. The other paintings felt a bit “meh”, but I enjoyed the process and feel that I am learning as I go along.
For those who are keen to try sketching daily, why not join the rest of the world (really!) with Inktober 31 Days 31 Drawings.
I encourage you, moms, to also make the time to sit and sketch weekly. Join your children in the weekly Sketch Tuesday topic, or sit and create an entry in your Mom’s nature journal page. It is wonderful to give yourself time to sit and be creative.
