The drawing of this monochrome start went really quick. I may have picked an easy pose.

Regardless my session was only an hour and a half. I can definitely feel that I’m getting more comfortable drawing with the brush. The daily practice with it is paying off.

  1. Well, you know the principles of shaping new habits and behavior is to start simple- so simple and easy you cannot fail, and gradually build from that.
    I’d rather not see you downsize your accomplishment. You did a great start and you liked your pace. Let that accomplishment feed into a more challenging pose next time.
