Hi all. This is my second attempt to go through this challenge. The last one started really nicely, but the goal of oil painting everyday became quite unrealistic for me after some changes my life went through during the challenge. So I tried keeping it up every second day but after a while I realized I had totally failed it.
That said I also felt that trying it really helped me getting closer to my goals. So I’ll give it a second chance with an easier goal in mind.
This time around my goal is to draw a human figure or object for at least 10min a day. I plan to use either pencils or oils, and the occasional pastel chalk. I’ll still paint bigger oil pieces in the meantime, so I might count those in.
The aim this time around is to improve my observation and proportion skills, mainly with the human body, but with the occasional landscape. So there will be some anatomical drawings, some model drawings, and a bit of landscape so as not to get bored.
And I’ll kick start my day one (that was yesterday) with these hands studies
Had a nice time drawing them yesterday. Just took some nice hand poses from nma’s gallery, sharpened the pencils and spent some 30 min on them, I think. I’m quite slow usually, and I don’t mind that, but I’ll try to improve that so it gets easier to keep up with the challenge.
Will be posting day 2 later on today!January 4, 2021 at 2:14 pm #1067437January 4, 2021 at 6:35 pm #1068703Raven KushnerParticipant
