I read a blog post yesterday that fascinated me. Carol wanted to improve at drawing cats, and so she followed the advice of a teacher: “If you want to get really good at something, you must draw it at least 100 times.” This had my head spinning yesterday wondering what subject could be worth drawing 100 times. While talking to my sister (the artist), it came to me. Beach art! That’s what really jazzes me. It’s what I love most, and what I want to share with the world.
I find water really challenging, or I’d do it all the time, but D said it’ll always be challenging until I keep doing it. So. 100 seascapes it is. Or 100 pieces of beach art. Whatever. Lots of water, boats and yes, lighthouses, people! Maybe by the time I get to my 100th painting, it’ll be time to open that Etsy shop. Or sell art on the street corner. I don’t know. But I’m gonna give it a go. (Colors used: cerulean, ultramarine, indigo, burnt sienna, raw sienna, cadmium yellow, winsor orange, rose madder)
Who’s with me? What’s worth drawing 100 times to you? Let’s get this paaaahty staaaaahted *cue the dance*!
