A 365 daily drawing project begun in good faith, but thwarted by life, death, progress and other forces. I have since scaled it back to “regular” but I still aim to fulfil the 365 target.
The process has thrown up so many unexpected things, ideas, personal development, a noticing of what I notice, discovery of stories, and connection with other people, none of which would have happened otherwise. So I would recommend trying it, as long as time keeping is your strong point and don’t value your sanity much.
Now dust had settled I recommence with added perspective and purpose.
All images should link back to the Instagram post whence they came.
If you’re interested in seeing the rest, most are in gallery form here, and you can see all the previous posts about the project here. If you would like more instant updates on this you can follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, if you like those sorts of things.
Horses in motion.
With special emphasis on the ears.
View out of and during a quiet window at lunchtime.
First one I have managed since the bereavement, so I am just going to pick up where I left off with the numbering and carry on.
Bit rusty to say the least, it’s incredible to think how confident and fluid you become with just a small bit of observational drawing every day.
I can see this one growing out sideways like those others.
Having a Kate Bush day in the office.

Cars, looking into the morning sun drawn yesterday morning waiting for Halfords to open after blowing a headlamp bulb.
Yesterday was all about wheels turning, big new project beginning, new boiler actually working, technology happening.

Back after a long break (bean busy see blog for explanation).
Bits of horse, mostly eyes.
Clevedon Riding Centre, whilst Second Youngest takes a lesson.
Work (actual) desktop, the bit inbetween the screens anyway. Drawn badly over a two day period whilst test rendering frames.
Bit more done to the long term project that is the view over the road. Previously featured as 23/365 and 12/365.
Feeling good today. Drawing helps.
I have started collecting these on a single page on my blog, go there (link in my bio), and click on 365 on the menu. Also there is a link to my Facebook page which I have just cranked into action again. These drawings will go there as well as anything else I might see fit. Look for the Facebook “F” on the sidebar if you like Facebook.
Ye olde plastic garden chair.
A small window of seasonally appropriate weather hits the UK. Everyone panics. But then a cold breeze resumes so.
