こんばんは。 How’s it going?

During our Thanksgiving dinner, the subject of Inktober came up and I began to wonder if I would be able to handle a project like that. These days, I can only devote 15 minutes or so each day to work on an ink drawing. For the line-drawing-to-digital-versions I have enjoyed creating, the process takes a few days (off and on), so these types of artwork are not feasible, but for the simple doodles, I spend just a few minutes on them and these are the pieces that I think are realistic to create daily. And then I thought, why wait until next October to start? So I’ve decided (not wholeheartedly, mind you) to being a daily drawing exercise.

And if I have time, I would love to add some extra details using watercolor so I can build up my skills with that medium (plus it’s fun!). The piece below took about an hour to complete, so I don’t think it is possible to do each day, but perhaps on the weekend when I have more time late at night.

So, I think I’ll to commit to a daily drawing habit in addition to my daily blog and photo activities. But can I carve out time? Let’s try!

To see all the sketches I’ve been working on, you can check out the Flickr album “My Sketching Journey”, or my Instagram account barron.sketches which I created just for posting sketches, watercolors, and stationery items.

I hope you had a nice weekend.
