Just because I hit 100, it didn’t mean that I stopped drawing people. Although it took the pressure off I managed another 50. I returned to my usual (much quieter) cafe as I needed to get some work done. And on Thursday morning managed these sketches in between working on my handout for the Palladian Odyssey Umbrian Tour.
In the evening I had dinner with Chris Haldane at the Westfield CBD Foodcourt. It was a fun evening and made me realise that I don’t get much variety in nationalities in my local cafes. There are some really interesting watercolour work in this collection and I will share more in my wrap-up article separately.
I feel a bit sad that this challenge is over as the push to achieve a higher quantity than normal has had a big impact. More about this later!
But I’m also relieved as it had added a lot of pressure to my week – I think an additional 6 hours of sketching over the 5 days. But I think that is the nature of a good challenge so I’m not complaining – just thankful it’s only a five day challenge!
Although it’s been quiet here on the blog with very few comments, it’s been hectic over on Instagram – lots and lots of comments and DMs! So my Instagram screen time has been higher this week than normal – but I’ve had a blast and it’s just so exciting to see so many people taking part in the challenge from all over the world.
So how did you go?
How many did you achieve?
How exhausting/demanding was it to fit in the sketching time?
(We can share takeaways in my next article!)
