EVERY DAY IN MAY. I am a newcomer to this group art challenge which has been running for several years. Why have I only just discovered it? Maybe it is because I am obsessed with sketching lately and search out forums, classes and blogs related to sketching and journals. I even joined facebook after resisting it for years so that I could participate in the Artists Journal Workshop group. This is a great forum, although it is very large with lots of activity, which I find a little difficult to keep up with.
I would like to think that I can keep up with the daily sketch prompt for EDIM but its ok if I miss a day here and there. No pressure! A list is provided with prompts for each day and participants are encouraged to post on the Facebook page – https://m.facebook.com/groups/edmeverydayinmay/ or Flickr – https://www.flickr.com/groups/edmeverydayinmay2011/
I will be using the sketches as a way to try different techniques and maybe media, getting inspiration from others posting on the forum and shamelessly trying to copy styles of some of my painting heros.
