Taking the Pressure Off and Feeling the Discomfort

Yoga Ice cream drawing

I still have quite a few unfinished assignments for Sketchbook Skool’s Stretching Klass but I’m trying to be OK with that. I’m still working on my 30 face drawings in 30 days and for now that’s enough for me to be getting on with.

I’m drawing every day and enjoying it. Pushing myself to do the SBS assignments as well right now would feel a bit too pressured and take the fun out of them. So I’m being kind to myself and letting myself off the hook by not doing them.

Not finishing these drawings at the same time as most other people on the kourse feels a bit uncomfortable because I’ve not done them ‘perfectly’ somehow, and that doesn’t sit easily with me. So maybe that’s another good reason to leave them alone for now – so I can get more comfortable with something that feels slightly uncomfortable.

Do you find it difficult to sit with something that’s incomplete or somehow imperfect? How do you deal with that feeling?
