When I’ve done my quota of art work every day and in-between other more mundane daily tasks I also do art exercises. I’ve been drawing heads after seeing Ahmed Aldoori’s video on drawing 50 heads in 10 days #meds50heads.
I don’t think I’ll manage to draw 50 heads in 10 consecutive days but I will keep drawing them and other subjects anyway to keep my observational skills going and try different techniques. I’ve been doing digital studies and coloured pencil studies. The digital painting studies tend to be more time consuming, and I’ve been using a timer to try and keep pencil sketches to no more than 15-30 minutes. Doing studies bleeds into my other projects sometimes or inspires other work, so it is worth doing.
