The first week of AEDM is over, and I've been keeping, well, more or less up with it. I missed the first day, as I only read about it last Wednesday. I did do a little sketch then, though. And here's what I've been doing since then.
Thursday, 3 November:
A little pencil sketch of a leaf on the train on the way home from work, which I then filled in with some colour pencils later in the evening, once I was home.
Friday, 4 November: I didn't feel very well, and simply couldn't be bothered to even take up a pencil. There simply are days like that. Best to just stick to the sofa, the hot water bottle and alphabet soup.
Saturday, 5 November and Monday, 7 November:
More leaves. I did some quick, and rather unfinished, watercolour sketches on Saturday, during painting class. The paint wasn't quite dry yet when I left, so I just put a sheet of paper over it - which is why it looks a bit untidy in some places. I added some more pencil sketches of leaves today during my lunch break
Sunday, 7 November:
Again no energy to be creative at all. So back to sofa, the hot water bottle and alphabet soup again (I don't know why, but somehow, I find alphabet soup just so comforting...). I did manage to go for an inspiring walk in the afternoon though, taking loads of pictures. And I spent most of the evening processing them, using a variety of textures. (See also yesterday's post). I'm sure that should count as "doing something", right?
