Tips for your Daily Drawing Habit

You can commit yourself to drawing daily, but what if you don’t have any ideas?

Most days, I don’t really have a hard time to find things to draw. It can be just a five-minute drawing of my morning coffee, but when I can (and this mostly happens in the weekends), I sit down for an hour or even more, and forget about the time while I draw. Often I don’t even think too much about the subject or topic because to me, everything becomes interesting as soon as you start drawing it. Sometimes I’m really surprised about the complexity of certain subjects, or about creative ways you can come up with to capture seemingly complicated shapes or scenes. Also, these ‘go tos’ allow me to try out new techniques on shapes that are quite familiar.

Here are some of the things that I like to draw. Maybe the list helps you get ideas:

  1. Morning coffee or breakfast
  2. Any type of meal or food
  3. View from the couch in the living room
  4. Feet
  5. Hands
  6. Selfies using a photo or a mirror
  7. View from a table in a restaurant or coffeeshop
  8. The table and everything on it during a meal or dinner party
  9. Portraits from a paused TV screen
  10. Art tools (the watercolor box is particularly fun to color!)

In January, I’ve been participating in the online drawing challenge, that’s hashtagged #sbsadrawingaday. Initiated by Sketchbook Skool, this 365 project is available for anybody who can use a bit of inspiration. I am not sure if I will be following the prompts every day again in February because even though it really pushed me to make that daily drawing and not skip a day or postpone, I also like the freedom to come up with ideas myself, rather than fitting them into the topic of the day.

Here’s the list for February!

I hope you’ll challenge yourself with this daily drawing list of prompts. It’s really a lot of fun!
