The purpose of a sketch a day is just to do it - sketch! It doesn't matter if it is an involved sketch or if it is a simple contour or gesture drawing. There are no rules except to sketch each day.

Life parameters can dictate the time investment, but a sketch a day commitment is designed to elevate the personal priority of sketching ... to enforce sketching. Making it into a "resolution" validates the activity (invests it with a bit of a challenge even!) and defends against competing demands. The sketch a day is designed for practice - to reinforce basic skills, and to provide daily contemplation on the issues of two dimensional representation.

Several of us are doing a sketch a day, and I would enjoy hearing from anyone else who decides to join in. We share our efforts, support each other, keep each other honest and... hopefully we'll have some fun doing this!

December 23, 2011

    Not the clearest, least confusing drawing I've ever done... mainly because of the near left corner, which is supposed to be a  glossy, goldened portion of this leg of lamb roast which we had for Christmas Eve dinner... the tin foil at the end of the pan and above and to the back is confusing also. I think I'll give up and do a simple Christmas line drawing next!
