Lack of Sleep
Me, working through reference books for a drawing
Ever since my X'mas break, I got into a habit to sleep around 2.00 in the morning and woke up around 10. My body was so adapted to the holiday hours that even though it's been more than a week since I got back to work, I could only bring myself to sleep around 1:00 am. BUT I needed to get up at 6:30 am for work!
Lack of sleep = lack of energy = slow progress in art making. I can't seem to focus and everything takes twice the time to finish. As a beginner in drawing, I have to do a lots of drafting, color study, brushwork & penwork study before I could start working on the actual drawing. With such major sleep deprivation, it's a wonder that I managed to finish a drawing last night! But I'm not going to post it yet. Instead I'm to post this one.
This is Sarah's gift to me after I sent her my X'mas Giveaway artwork. What a lovely cute drawing and I adore it! Thank you Sarah. :D
That's it for now and excuse me if this post read a bit clumsy. I'm half awake .... zzzzz
