[Drawing] One Day
December 22, 2015

As you stand back and reflect over the past 12 months, how do you rate your drawing progress? Did you improve or did you keep putting it off?

I read something recently that had a real impact on me, and it was..."Make a decision not to live for 'one day' anymore."

Yeah, how often do we say "I'll do that one day"?

If all you do is continuously read drawing tips and think you'll be able to do it all at some future time, I encourage you to have a re-think. Really, when IS one day? Why not make 'now' the time for living and doing what you enjoy?

There's no better feeling than a sense of accomplishment so why put if off?

Draw in every spare moment and don't worry about rules or expectations. You may well be the next best artist but you'll never know until you start drawing consistently.

If it's the thought that you can't draw that's stopping you from drawing, then scribble with intention!

Look for every opportunity to draw over the Christmas break, it's time to do something nice for yourself :)

Kick the session of with a few easy flower outlines or get into the Christmas spirit by trying some simple angel drawings and Christmas symbols.

Drawing Tip of the Month

Overcome fear of failure by making a decision to just play with a pencil.

Decide that you WANT to see things that don't resemble things and decide you're CURIOUS to see how you decipher an object into an outline. When you give yourself permission to play, it is amazing to witness what you can really do!

Playing induces your creativity and your confidence grows when you see the outstanding results that come from nowhere.

I'm going to play today, how about you?

, thanks so much for taking time out of your busy schedule to read this issue.
