After Inktober I will take a little break from drawing, but I think the bug has bitten me again. I am definitely going to keep drawing now as I had forgotten how much I enjoyed it. One drawing a day is a bit much, but enjoyable nonetheless. I think I might get some ink and a brush too and start working wet.
I don’t think I was fully prepared for the fatigue that Inktober could cause. I purposely choose to work in small sketches instead of bigger finished works to make the drawing manageable, none of my pictures have taken more than about 45 minutes to produce and often much less. Nonetheless I find myself trying to think about what I am going to do 1 or 2 prompts into the future before I have finished the current one. Finding 45 mins a day to draw, and produce output, is harder than I thought.
Inktober day 8
Nothing had grown in the soil for years but eventually the first tentative signs of life started to appear again. #inktober
I like working with physical ink and paper instead of digitally. The permanent nature of putting ink on paper makes me have to accept and work with my mistakes and think about my pen strokes. The easily corrected nature of drawing digitally means I spend too much time fussing over small things, trying to redraw the same line over and over until its perfect, that i never actually finish anything. This is something I need to address.
