A friend of ours in the village specialises in cleaning bones and skulls to be used in education, he gifted my son this sheep skull last year. It’s something I’ve been wanting to draw for a long time but always found it too daunting. Last night I decided to give it a try and was surprised at how well it turned out.
Drawing this it made me realise just how much progress I made even after a mere three months of my 365 day project. At the beginning I often felt frustrated and discouraged, was this ever going to get easier? Would my lines ever get better? Will I stop having a headache with perspective? The answer is yes, a little at a time, yes.
The funny thing is, starting the fourth month, the “project” feels less like a big deal. It’s just something I do, it’s not something I think about or that my family asks me about anymore. Goes to show this making a habit thing really pays off.
How is your personal challenge going? Do you have a new one planned for April? Can you see progress from when you first started?
