One sketch a day

I have been wanting one of these for ages, but the thought of forcing myself to make the time to sketch each day has been a bit frightening. Although I can't keep moaning that my work doesn't develop if I don't practise enough. The thing that I struggle with most is finding inspiration and knowing what to draw. Having this book with me constantly will hopefully stop me from making excuses and help me capture what comes to mind no matter where I am. I will show some of my progress on here, so wish me luck! ox

I am not the most free spirit out there, I love my electrical equipment and I have a deep need to be clean so only having a bucket as a shower for two days was pretty scary. I was also a little anxious about sleeping in a shed all weekend, but it turned out to be the most glamourous camping trip I have had to date. The weather helped, we had gorgeous sunshine every day and Brighton is such a lovely place to be. I had never been there before and I had only heard good things so we thought this weekend we should give it a go. I really loved the atmosphere, the mixture between the hustle and bustle, quirky little backstreets with little vintage shops and the british excitement of being at the sea side.
I must say my favourite part was winning a plastic blow up alien, I was extremely happy with myself.
As for our little shepherds hut we found our selves growing attached to our little bed and cooker, as well as waking up with a sheep at the window just checking if we were ok. So our time in the countryside was hardly bare grills but I did feel like I had achieved something even if anti bacterial hand gel is now my new best friend.
