I'm quite sure I do not need another project, but it's been over a year since I have sketched on a daily basis. During an online class on visual journaling, I came across a book called The Zen of Seeing/Drawing: Seeing/Drawing as a Meditation. The class focused on contemplative photography, but I enjoyed the book not only as a new way to approach photography, but also as a new way of approaching drawing. So when the #The100DayProject appeared in my email, I decided to make a go of it. While we were in Florida, I ordered two books, and I've read parts of both. I'll be using them as a resource during the project. I decided to limit both time (20 minutes max), and materials: a small Moleskin Sketch book, a pencil, a Micron pen, and a waterbrush. If I have time, I'll add some watercolor to the sketch.
With some encouragement from Honoré, I'm going to attempt a daily posting on Instagram as well. We'll see how that goes. I started The 100 Day Project last year, but didn't get very far. I thought, perhaps, a public commitment might improve my odds of success.
Here's Day 1. I've decided to lay out my materials each night before I go to bed, and to be sure to finish the sketch before noon. If I'm going to draw an object, I'll find it the night before and lay it on the desk. I chose a little Easter decoration for the first one.
