So far I’ve drawn a picture each day for Inktober. Whether that will last, I don’t know but this is what I’ve got so far. 6 drawings, all done directly in ink, all black and white, some drawn from photos, others from ‘real life’.
As I mentioned last week, I’ve not set myself a ‘theme’ for this month and the lack of ‘boundaries’ feels a bit too much sometimes. It makes getting down to drawing a bit more difficult but I’m going with it for now and seeing what happens.
Are you ‘Inktober-ing’? How are you getting on so far?
(P.S. I’m taking a holiday soon, so this week is my last week of posting on Tuesday and Friday. Rather than just stop abruptly, I’m taking a tip from Michael Nobbs and easing gradually into my break. That means that next week I’ll post on Tuesday but not on Friday and then I’ll take a full week’s break (with no blog posts) before easing back in with one post on 30 October. From 2 November I’ll be back to twice a week blogging. Hope that makes sense!)
Tomorrow I’ll draw the last person drawing in my Daler Rowney sketchbook. My plan was to probably choose another theme and draw something else every day during October but like I said last week, I was just waiting to see what felt right.
I’ve been drawing nothing but people (one each day) for almost 2 months now. I decided to carry on with that ‘self assignment’ (to use Fabio Consolli‘s words) after Drawing August ended and until my current sketchbook was filled.
