Day One with a ball point pen. I couldn't stop from detailing
Day Two with a Blunt Pencil, less inclination to detail but still
Day Three with a Color Pencil
Day Four with Brush and Ink... I was least inclined to obsess over getting perfection... and might have been the quickest yet
Day Five taught me to be patient
Day Six with a Cutter's straight and curved surfaces was a challenge I loved
Day Seven with a brush pen and an empty tube of toothpaste, I love the freedom the brush pens give thanks to the varying thicknesses
Day Eight, I worked with a tiny peice of black crayon and a clip
On Day Nine, I used a color pencil to do this scotch tape unit... my favorite part was the second sketch where i could work in the text, and this was a a unique one from the earlier objects as the transparency added to the way one views the form
Day Ten was this cute owl clutch and i used a brush pen for this, here this brush does not control the flow of ink, but that was an experience too
Day Eleven has been my most exciting so far, thanks to the new Pentel Fude brush ppen that I bought myself, it really is fun to draw with
Day Twelve with a Panda Toy the same newly acquired Pentel Brushpen was probably one of my most enjoyable, as you can see I even filled in the black fur parts!
Day Thirteen was a set of Keys with a fob, that I drew with a Brown shade of watercolor paint and an average sized brush, and again one of the more enjoyable ones
Day Fourteen was not the best compared to the preceeding fantastic 3 days with Brushes, because I chose a complicated and pretty detailed object like the Headphones and went in with an Uniball Eye pen. But I saw it as a challenge and I'm okay if it did not turn out perfect.
At the end of these last 14 days this is what I've learnt (I probably had a hint of these, but now I know for sure):
1. I was my most confident self with these medium- Brushes + paint/Ink, A thick stick of crayon or Charcoal , so basically all thick/blunt medium that automatically wires my brain into going about the form and not detailing
2. With thinner medium I'm under the compulsion to get all the edges right espescially if they are pens
3. I usually start with a simple perspective of objects, easy to comprehend and easy to draw, so most of my 1st sketch out of the 2/3/4 from the 6 minute practice are better looking than the later ones. But that does not take away the fact that the later sketches are bad, they involve distorted proportions and thus I set myself a higher target, so there definitely is progress because I feel more confident of trying these awkward angles now than before
4. Initially, I also seemed to do the first sketches with quite the care that I didn't give to the rest. Why? Impatience!So I'm learning to be patient and calmly draw
5. And lastly, I seem to be relearning some things about sketching/ drawing and myself with this continuous art practice, and hence I am planning on keeping this going everyday!
