So i succumbed to colouring yesterday’s sketch, and it took me way way longer than I expected to, even though I only did a rough colour. It’s hardly surprising, i made it more difficult by drawing so much. Part of me is annoyed that I didn’t do all the line art like I normally would and colour it properly… but then I remembered that I was suppose to be doing quick pieces every day. So I had to compromise and colour it enough so I could see what I had in my mind but not spend any more time on it. So even though I didn’t get out a new drawing, i do very much feel that I’m evoked in inner child in this piece, something I hope I never lose.
Compromise in general is just another thing I’ve had to come to terms with over the years with art. It can always be better but there has to be a point that you let it go and move on to the next piece.
So I will spend the weekend reflecting on this week of ideas. My hope is to do one more week of ideas a day next week.
