Fresh Start to a New Year
I have been anticipating the beginning of this project since I heard about it. I have always wanted to sketch more and make a sketchbook, but my participation has been sketchy (ha, ha, please forgive the pun!). I am inconsistent at best. And, though, I normally HATE challenges, I decided to do this one and feel free to participate, but change the rules as it suits my needs. You can see the full challenge here. I am going to attempt to try to sketch and post every day. I don't think I can draw. However, my hope is that by drawing every day, by the end of the year, I will be better at it than I am today. Simple, modest goal, eh? I suspect the hard part will be the every day part.
So, today, I have set up my blog, and gotten my materials together. I noticed from the sketchbook participants, lots of art supplies. I am going to try to learn photoshop and my new drawing tablet. All my work will be digital, or not. I may break out the markers, watercolors, and real pencils at some point. But, the truth is that I just love my new drawing tablet, it forgives mistakes so easily, and it is so easy to play with color and design elements to just move them around at whim! I get lost for hours in it, and that speaks volumes to me. I think it is funny that my first post has no sketch yet. I am off to rake leaves and will return to sketch and upload a photo before the day is done!
