I got an AWESOME night of sleep last night (hard to come by, lately), and I had an open day for creativity.
Talk about a breath of fresh air. It was nice to have the space to catch up on the things I was falling behind on. Maybe that’s why I kept today open? I don’t know, but I’m grateful for the time.
I got to the cabin extra early and knocked out a warmup page and some gestures:
I got some more gesture drawing time in while studying some Steve Huston videos before lunch:
And another, slower gesture with much more attention to proportion and structure.
What went well?
- An absolute TON of creative time, study time and catch-up time today.
What needs work?
- Managing my week so I don’t fall behind so much in the future.
What did I learn?
Building in “buffer days” works really well for me, but I’d be better off having extra space in my days so I don’t start to feel overwhelmed before my buffer day. Yeah…
