Every June and July I participate in the #dyicad (Daisy Yellow Index-Card-a-Day) challenge. I commit to making a piece of art on an index card for every day for two months. The idea is that a 2″ x 3″ artwork is absolutely achievable on a daily basis.
I missed Day 1 of the challenge. Although I had ideas for the prompt (hopscotch), my sketches were unsuccessful, and I knew that Monday was just not my day.
Day 2’s prompt was marigold:
I chose not to use Day 3’s prompt (which is only a suggestion). Instead I drew a self-portrait, because I want to get better at drawing people.
On Day 4 I drew another person, not based on anyone in particular.
Each Saturday for the next two months, I will show you my icads up through Thursday.
By the way, July is World Watercolor Month, when I make a watercolor on an index card (or maybe on an “illegal” watercolor post card) so that I can qualify for two challenges with one entry.
