Final yr I managed to do 300 folks sketches (100 ink and wash sketches in an area cafe, 100 from photographs at dwelling and 100 line drawings in a single sitting) however this yr I solely managed 100.
I haven’t been effectively recently so sketching on location was not an possibility however doing 20 marker sketches from photographs every day was manageable over two 20 minute classes. There’s something particular about this purpose of 100 sketches – irrespective of the way you deal with it and it doesn’t matter what the ultimate quantity you obtain.
I’ve to say that I used to be tremendous impressed by Marc’s marathon of sketching 100 on the primary day! Possibly one yr I will dedicate a full day to sketching folks – that might be very cool!
I positively missed sketching on location this yr (it’s SO far more enjoyable to sketch from life and notably with enjoyable interactions with folks round me) however I hope that this week’s problem will encourage me to begin sketching folks extra repeatedly. (I do know that I say this yearly!)
Sketching with markers was a superb experiment – it was rather less forgiving than I anticipated however a lot simpler than utilizing watercolour (no ready time!)
When you be part of within the problem this yr, I hope that you’ve plenty of enjoyable and haven’t put an excessive amount of stress on your self to hit 100. (I felt the stress of the 100 purpose this yr, so I actually perceive!)
