Sketches and Determination
Some very quick sketches for Scavenger Hunt #54. I am determined to do these in order for the challenge. I don't have anything to sketch in color with, so I have to at least attempt the other challenges.
Determination - Dictionary.com has a variety of entries for Determination. Wikipedia is a lot more simple but it has lots of interesting links to related words. I like being determined. I like doing things that seem a little crazy or beyond expectations for a purpose that some do not entirely understand. Most artists I have come in contact with are determined people. Todays tiny little effort to be determined had me standing in the rain to sketch these in order. Mind you, I did not get drenched, nor did I catch pneumonia. It isn't really such a big deal, but it's that tiny little pinch of salt that makes a dish taste better in my endeavors to become a good artist.
I really miss my paints. Funny how you miss something more when it is gone. I am determined not to let this stop me from working. I have always known there are things I should be doing that I don't always do, like quick daily sketches, thumbnail sketches and ideas for future works. Today is Fight Procrastination Day! I suppose this is a good day to start.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
