Daily Art | 2018

 

As I mentioned in my New Year’s post, I’ll be working on Daily Art (again) this 2018 in an effort to draw and paint more. It’ll be hard, though. Year-long projects are hard. I started back in 2017–linked here–for about two and a half months before the pieces started becoming sporadic and hasty, midnight scribbles I’d do just to fulfill the quota. This year, though, I’m going to try and make a habit out of it.

Like last year, I’ll aim to post a drawing a day, alongside the usual 2-3 posts per week.

Speaking of which, I’m never entirely sure how often I ought to blog. Sometimes I’ll want to write everyday, but then I won’t post it in fear of cluttering people’s feeds. Other times, I’ll go weeks or months without feeling inspired, and my blog’ll be largely untouched, aside from some old art or recycled prose. About half a year ago I decided on the 2-3 posts a week bare minimum, a buffer for times when I’m feeling lacklustery. (For those who blog–how often do you post/aim to post, and do you set schedules?)

 

Anyhow, I’ll start throwing up Daily Art posts this Sunday (January 7th, 2018). Here’s to hoping I don’t find too many excuses to quit the project before the end of the year, and that publicly posting the project will hold me accountable!

  1. I’m also struggling to know when to upload, so I’m just aiming for two/three posts randomly a week. Scheduling is really useful if you get ahead of it as having an ‘off day’ seems like less of a disaster. Although sticking to a routine can also feel really restricting… TOO MANY CONFLICTING IDEAS!

    Anyway, your art is amazing! I cant wait to see more โค

    1. ah, yes! i read your last post on posting more “naturally,” as opposed to scheduling everything out. but gah, then there’s the off-day scenario, the sense that maybe you shoould stick to a routine, but maaaybe not…lol.

  2. I’ve been posting every Thursday for the past two years and added every Monday almost a year ago. If I posted more than that I feel like I’d run out of things to post really quick. I like having a set day each week. It means I have a deadline every week to produce finished art and a blog post about it. It also means I can plan ahead and take time off and still post fresh art all the time.

  3. I actually find that posting my challenges online and letting people know that I’m doing it forces me to finish the challenge. ๐Ÿ˜Š Goodluck! And great artworks ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

      1. Oh. That World Watercolor Challenge I did last October (Autumn themed) and the other was Project 365+1 which forced me to write something everyday based on the given prompt on year 2016.

  4. I love your art, the ballerina’s were beautiful…watercolor right? It’s one of my favorite mediums and it looks really nice. As for me I tend to upload whenever I feel like it? I’m trying to upload more content as of late, but if you don’t feel inspired it shouldn’t be forced. If I feel inspired and have multiple posts I just schedule them so it won’t feel like spam? But, do what makes you comfortable. And again, I love your art. It’s wonderful.

      1. It’s fine. : )

        Ahh, I figured. I’m a big fan of watercolor so, the medium looked the same, but I’ve been surprised before.

        I didn’t know that my username directed to an error page. Thanks for letting me know, apparently I forgot to update and make it link to my blog. Whoops. I think I fixed the issue, but if not the link to my blog is: https://serendipitousvellichor.wordpress.com
