Recovering Some Discipline

Blue Heron (graphite)

I discovered a little bit of willpower this evening and actually pulled out my sketch pad to exercise some pencil strokes with this Blue heron referenced from Angeline Rijkeboer on Paintmyphoto.com…. you’ve possibly noticed that I’m finding it difficult to get into any kind of routine at the moment, or maybe I should be really honest and say ‘this year’.

I have lots of excuses – it’s too cold to concentrate (or sit still), work is too busy, I have my mind on other things – all of which are true, but they are just excuses. Well, it’s time for a shake up. So, I’m setting up a new workspace in our spare bedroom. It’s not as bright as the kitchen but it’s easier to heat – and I went out today to look for a heater for said room. I also reminded myself tonight that I can sketch in artificial light, with the TV on, by sketching this Blue Heron.

I’m planning on working in babysteps to begin with, so in good rehabilitation form let’s see if I can make it two days in a row and come up with something tomorrow as well 😛
