Re: A Beginner's Journal - Trying to Draw/Paint Every Day

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

I did a few quick and amateurish studies using watercolour and gouache this week. I'm trying to transition into more complex subjects, something I had been avoiding for a while. Each one took about 30min or so and looks like it. I'm trying to get into the mentality of just drawing/painting a lot without the expectation that I will produce anything good. I think this will help me improve in the long run and the reduce the anxiety created by unrealistic standards.

I would love to be that amateurish!

Great sketches.

Great sketches. I love the expression of the rabbit (hare?). It's as if it was caught doing something it knows full well it shouldn't be doing, haha.

All three very nice. I especially like the cardinal.
Good idea about drawing something quickly. It really does reduce the anxiety of failure.
