Sigh of Relief...365 DAys of Drawing Challenge

Getting ready for New York as mentioned yesterday. The good news is that in previous pre-workshop times, portrait trips, I would suddenly start cramming my drawing practice about one week before, (drawing being a separate skill set for me than painting which I do most days).

I always felt like I was at a disadvantage for not drawing more in my regular discipline and hated my art self for it.

Well, this time I don't feel that after five weeks of daily drawings, 39 CONSECUTIVE DRAWINGS, doing anything and everything from a donut to a parasol to a face.

It feels REALLY good.

This is last night's sketch, approximate drawing time, one hour. Life size. Charcoal, white chalk, and wash.
