A Sketch A Day – Thirty Day Challenge

I have decided to step up my art game on the road. It can be difficult to find time to do art between catching buses, seeing temples, deciding on accommodation, and all the hundreds of other things we have to do while traveling abroad. So now I’ve decided No More Excuses, it’s no longer an option not to sketch.

Everyday in March I am going to do a drawing from life. The parameters I have set for myself is fifteen minutes minimum, on the sketch pad, with pencils, inks, or brush. I will post the first seven that I have done here and then at the end of the month I will post all thirty drawings. Everyone is welcome to join me at any time.

Let’s Draw!
