Ahhh Mondays…I never have enough time on Mondays, even when I think I will.
I scheduled some drawing time early today, but some emergency home maintenance happened. I had to adapt and compress my art time more than I wanted to today, because my house has to come first.
Still, I feel like Urgent AND Important tasks are taking over what time I have for the non-urgent but still important tasks.
I still got my warmup done before I had to handle the house work, though!
I tried to do a slightly longer pose sketch, but was incredibly distracted while I was trying to work. After that it was time to run errands for the day.
I snuck in a few more gestures once I got back home. Still not as much art time today as I would like. And I’m completely out of gas at this point of the day.
What went well?
- Squeezing in some drawing time when I found openings in the day.
- I got a good workout in today, and hit my Oura activity goal!
- I think I have everything at home pretty well under control. No more emergencies!
What needs work?
- I need to get back to regularly doing gestures. I’m glad I squeezed a few minutes in today to hopefully maintain my eye for human proportion.
What did I learn?
Feeling rushed definitely impacts how well I’m able to do gesture drawing. Or any drawing, for that matter.
