Item #98 on my list of 101 Things in 1001 Days: make a time lapse video of a drawing or painting.
I spent Saturday at my dining table, surrounded by brushes and watercolours and paper.
With just 21 days to go until my deadline (eek!) I have a stack of drawing to get done, and by the end of today I started to feel like the lady in this drawing looks. Over it.
Serves me right for procrastinating, I guess.
This facepalming lady was fun to make. I’m starting to learn how to use water soluble graphite which, when paired with canvas paper, is magic. You can pick the colour up and push it around the page until it looks just right, which is harder to do with traditional watercolour paper. It’s nice to be able to hit it with the eraser to pull out the highlights too.
So, on with the rest of my drawings. My main hurdle right now isn’t the number of drawings I need to complete, it’s that drawing is no fun at all when you have to quickly move on to the next thing without making it perfect.
