“Draw every day. Even if it’s just a doodle on your lunch break, or a five-minute sketch before bed, draw. There’s no substitute — if you want to get better, you have to draw more and more”. Rob Turpin
I am inspired! This quote has got me fired up for a new ‘New Year’ challenge. Last year I decided to:
- Learn jazz piano
- Wear more hats
I succeeded at one of those…
So this year, I’m setting myself the challenge of drawing something every day. Anything;
- any subject
- any medium
- any size
Anything, just draw or sketch or doodle every day. It can only help in keeping those creative juices flowing!
Now, as the mother of a new baby (9 weeks at the time of writing) I may have to be realistic about how well I’ll stick to this challenge (after all, there have been days where I have consistently failed to clean my teeth over recent weeks). So I’ll approach this as an aspiration, as opposed to a resolution, and will post updates on any I feel are worth sharing.
So, as its the very first day of 2016, here’s my doodle for today…
Happy New Year everyone, warmest wishes for a wonderful 2016.
