The 100 Day Project
My biggest goal for 2021 is to make more art and build my portfolio. I’ve joined in with the 100 days project for the last few years, and only successfully completed it once (and even then, it was stretched way past 100 days!).
My aim for this year’s 100 day project, which starts on 31st January this year, is to head to MapCrunch - which gives you a random Google street view around the world – and fill my sketchbook with a new view every day. Not only do I get to practise landscapes and get used to using a sketchbook again, but I’ll also get to ‘travel’ the world which I am seriously missing at the moment.
If you fancy having a go at this, join me over on Instagram where I’ll be posting my finished drawing on my feed. I’ll be using the hashtag #100daysofmapcrunch so feel free to add this to your drawings too!
I’m giving myself a couple of rules to follow, but don’t feel you have to do the same. The most important thing about a 100 day project is that you have fun doing it!
- I am very unlikely to manage 100 days in a row. I am not to get frustrated if I miss a few days! As long as I create 100 drawings, I’ll be happy.
- The final drawing/painting does not need to be perfect. The main thing is to put something down on the paper.
Finally, I thought I’d share links to some of the materials I’ll be using:
- Royal Talens Sketchbook 13 x 21cm
- Arrtx Gouache Paint Set
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens
- Caran D’Ache Luminance Colour Pencils
- Curtisward Mastertouch Round Brushes
- And also a mix of other coloured pencils!
