I may have gotten a little carried away today with my project…and I’m alright with that.

It was a day full of plans, and I lost myself in drawing. I won’t be drawing tomorrow, though. Because it’s Sunday, and it also happens to be #FathersDay — so I hope everyone has a great one! I know I will. 🙂

Duration: 3h30m

Medium: Graphite and Cretacolor, Cretacolor on Newsprint

What went well?
I got some unexpected drawing time because I was mistaken about some plans today. They’re for NEXT week, not this week. I like when I get extra time to work.

I’m also really enjoying combining the cretacolor charcoal with graphite. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out, but this is a personal project, so I’m fine with experimenting. And I think the experiment is going well.

What didn’t go so well and what can I learn from that?
I was incredibly tired and weak this morning, so my gestures were stiffer than usual. I feel like I caught my stride a little bit, just by slowing down with my movements. I still put in one minute per gesture, but they ended up a little bit cleaner. Not the best gestures I’ve ever done, but I’m happy with the results.
