Not a day without line...356 Days of Drawing

Visitor from abroad staying with me for the weekend. Fun times, late nights, outings - and time away from the studio. The last thing one feels like doing is a drawing challenge amid all the festivities.

But I stuck to my plan. Just a half hour every day. Get that pencil to the sketch book paper doing something simple. These sketches are from the weekend, with a nod to some Master reference material.

Not a day without line in 2010. So far unbroken.

I had better keep that line unbroken.

I will be having a show of my year's challenge scheduled for April 2011, called Not A Day Without Line, 365 Days of Drawing 2010. Opening night is April Fool's day. How appropriate.

These drawings are beautiful. I admire your commitment. You are making me think about how I can incorporate more drawing time into my schedule. Thanks.

thanks Hope. I am thrilled to say I have had feedback that is very similar to yours with others picking up the pencil more and emailing me to tell me about it.
