I started this project of drawing from reference photos in Scott Schuman’s book “The Satorialist – Closer”. I managed a few figures a week in the beginning, now the speed and drive is petering out. And I’m wondering why? It is hard work, drawing those figures, so I’m not going to be too hard on myself, if I only get one done once every 10 days, I’m still going to be ok. I do notice however that I’m being overly critical with myself during the drawing phase. Which makes no sense, especially as it’s all just for fun. I’ve now filled half the sketchbook and believe I can get the rest done by Christmas. If I stop being so overly critical, I could get it done in 3.
They sometimes look a bit distorted, but who cares, it’s just a drawing in a sketchbook, just doing something, just spending some time not looking at screens. Just playing around.
