The thing I like best about Sketch Daily is that it pushes me out of my comfort zone. I wanted to make sure I didn’t seek comfort on Free Draw Friday so I chose something that was very intimidating to me – an octopus! It doesn’t hurt that I also adore them.
I limit myself to 30 minutes so I didn’t complete it in one session, but that is also something else I am working on. I have a history of being obsessed with completing projects in one go, which is usually stressful because I put so much pressure on myself to finish and I also don’t give myself any time to reflect (or enjoy) the process. This cutie will have to wait for another day. Don’t get me wrong, it’s driving me nuts to leave it half-completed. But I need to get comfortable with the uncomfortable. It’s the only way to grow.
