Figure Drawing After a Long Day

It’s safe for me to say that doing artwork daily is a well established habit for me now, and even after a very long, maybe even frustrating day, it’s not difficult for me to sit down and do 30 or 60 minutes of figure drawing. Now, the challenge I’m facing is how to increase the time I spend on art and do it consistently.

One idea I’ve had is to split of my time doing artwork throughout the day. Maybe I do a drawing after I get off work and before my workout, then continue with more drawing at the end of my day like normal. But, I fear that this method will not provide enough time for me to establish a deep focus. On the other hand, I’m not working more than an average of 1 hour a day so deep focus is not happening anyway…

The only other idea I have is to cut out something from my daily routine and put more focus on art. Honestly I don’t think this is possible, I’ve simplified my life so much that I have three things I focus on throughout the day. My 3 W’s. Work, Workout and Work of art.

I wish I had a good answer to this, then anyone reading my blog would not just waste their time reading my rambling and actually benefit from it. I’ll keep working on it, and I write it here when I figure out a solution that works for me.
