Day before yesterday started a social networking challenge called OneWeek100People2017 challenge. One week being five days and not seven.
I know me with most challenges so I decided not to participate. But then several people asked if I was going to join in. One day I'd think, NO and then the next day I'd think, YES. I just kept going back and forth so when Monday rolled around, I was on the YES and began this challenge.
Two days in and I was done with wanting to sketch people. In fact I woke up this morning hoping I'd feel refreshed jumping in to work more and just looking at the sketchbook and pen sitting on my desk just wasn't appealing in any way. So I've decided not to force myself to do something I'm truly not enjoying at this point. Repetition of a single subject just isn't for me (unless within reason). This is why anyone following my blog will see I jump around with subject all the time.
I'm one who prefers to sketch what jumps out at me at any moment's notice. Trying to force myself to do something that's not calling my name just ends up leaving me feeling frustrated and less than enthusiastic about sketching or painting.
But here are three more pages I worked yesterday giving me a total of 50 people in two days. I at least gave it a try but I'm done with people............at least for the time being. It will have to be on my own terms.........when I feel like practicing people.
