Hey y’all. Remember my Quicky Bird a Day challenge that I posted about a couple weeks back? Well, I’ve been plugging away at it, but I’ve discovered that while I’ve been able to sketch a bird each day, I haven’t quite been able to color them in each day. Some days are just too crazy for me to get it all done. So each day I at least try to sketch something at a minimum, and then I go back later and color them in as I’m able.
Here are a couple of my sketches that aren’t colored in yet:
And here are some that are colored:
I’ve been using these bird a day drawings as sort of a daily journal too. Sometimes I try to sketch something about the day, or sometimes it’s just something I’m feeling. July 30th was a obviously a day when Ashley and I couldn’t seem to agree on anything.
I wish I had enough time each day to fully color the drawings, but hey, some days you can only do so much, right? I try not to beat myself up too much about it and am just glad I keep making tiny movements each day.
I also seem to have gained a big fan that likes to help me out while I’m drawing:
On second thought, I don’t think he necessarily loves the drawings that much… I’m pretty sure it’s just that he likes sitting on the birds.
See ya next time!
