I really, really, really did not want to do my sketches today. It is so good that I have the accountability of the #FindYourFlow group because I don’t think I would have pushed through this resistance without it. I told myself just to watch the next eye video. When that didn’t really motivate me, I walked away for a couple of hours. When I came back, I told myself I could just do the sketches in blue pencil, and that would be enough. I didn’t have to add pen or color. That worked. I sketched the three characters in blue pencil, and when I was done, I was motivated enough to continue with the pen and color.
Today, I continued on with Nina Rycroft’s Guide to Drawing Eyes class. The down-turned eyes were perfect for today because they fit with my mood. I used Staedtler watercolor pencils for the color.
