2nd half of 28 day challenge

2nd half of 28 day challenge - student project

A project in which I didn't follow the directions exactly but got a lot out of it in spite of myself. Kinda wanna start again and follow the directions this time. 

 

Days 15 and 16: Tubes of printing ink and then jars of India ink.

Day 20: Found a small dead honeybee. Wish I drew it larger. But this is one of my favorite drawings in the "enjoyment" category.

Day 21: Inspired by the teacher's figurine, I grabbed this sweet cow. My first go was very botched but I learned enough by messing up that I was able to pull it off more successfully on the second attempt.

Day 22: I notice that my enjoyment number is higher when I'm drawing animals. And my confidence. I spend a lot of time drawing from nature. It's much more comfortable.

Day 23: I started grabbing items around the house more similar to the ones Ohn Mar Win uses in her drawings. I also start setting the timer for six minutes and trying to do several iterations of the object. I wish I had done the assignments as assigned from the beginning. It's such a useful exercise.

Day 24, 25, and 26: This is where I switch to objects that I don't normally draw. These have straight edges that meet curved edges. My enjoyment and confidence go way down.

Day 27: This was my 3rd attempt. Again, the straight lines that meet the curves are so challenging. But the cup is an improvement so I think the program is working. At this point, I really start wishing I'd followed the six minutes and multiple drawings protocol right from the first day.

Day 28: It's the last day. I fit three drawings in six minutes. I select an object more similar to the objects in the videos. I also start by making one long curving line and go from there. It's the exciting moment that the instructor was talking about - a sort of break through moment. I want to start the 14 days all over again. Thank you for the class.
