I’ve been penciled in on Coach’s calendar for Friday night. Finally, a “date night” for Sherri. Of course, the date night won’t start until 10PM and won’t last more than 30 minutes, but I’ve been penciled in so no complaints from me! This is something that is hard to manage and keep up with these days… shoot, I haven’t had but one “date night” in the past 3 months. There are good reasons for this but it doesn’t mean I have to like it! I’m so tired & the beast is acting up so it makes certain aspects of being a woman up in the top 5 things difficult to do – especially when sleep is always calling my name.… and of course Coach is so very tired from all the work he’s doing. I mean really, he gets home at 10PM and has to be back at work by 7AM the following morning – 7 days a week pretty much. So it’s come down to scheduling “date nights”…. pft, this too shall pass.
More sketching was done the past 2 days… I’m excited about the progress I can see in my work. That’s pretty bold of me to think but I’m allowed to toot my own horn from time to time. This practice thing might pay off one day. I found a site that is really helping with the gesture drawing. The site is free & provides a huge number of model images to work with along with the necessary timer. I’ve learned that gesture drawing is a necessary skill to work on in order to make other drawing better. So gesture drawing it is right now… it’s actually fun to do. (I’m not at the 30 second level yet… my drawings are at the 10 minute level but I will get there… I will!)
