Challenge Me

Well, I think every artist can relate when I say I've hit another creative roadblock. So, to keep moving forward and producing work I've decided to do another monthly challenge. The last challenge I did focused on photography, but now I will focus solely on drawing and painting. I've never done an entire drawing or painting in just a day so this really will be a challenge.

While I searched for artist challenges online I confess I really didn't like a lot of them. And some were obviously geared towards children. So, I decided to take the themes I liked from a bunch of different challenges, discard the ones I didn't like*, and create my own challenge list. Anyone who would like to join me in this monthly exercise is welcome to do so, post photographs of your work on Facebook and tag me (sorry I don't do Instagram). The challenge begins March 1st and ends on the 31st. Let the drawing/painting begin!

*Side note: I had no idea how many challenges were obsessed with drawing 'your favorite animal/pet' or 'breakfast.' I am not a big animal lover so, sorry, but I don't have a favorite and my breakfast is a pretty boring bowl of cereal every day. That's why I tweaked things and picked out the challenges I thought would be fun and interesting for me. Any suggestions for future challenges are welcome!
