Ever since I took up this new job, I have been so caught up with work and the result is that I don’t get enough time for the things I love the most. I have been blogging very irregularly and sketching has almost taken a backseat. Thankfully, I still manage to do my daily sadhna. After a long period of ill health, I have been better since last two months. So I have started going for evening walks and I have been able to maintain the schedule so far.
Another thing that I have been regular is my daily reading habit. This year I have also taken Goodreads Reading Challenge- my first one so far. I have taken a challenge of reading 40 books this year. I have read 16 books till date and reading the 17th these days. I have also made it a point to write reviews of all the books that I read this year. And if you are a regular reader of this blog then you might have noticed that most of my posts this year have been book reviews.
And now there are two things that I need to bring back on track- blogging and sketching. No more long periods of absence from the blog and I promise to write at least twice here ever week and at least one post a month on my astrology blog. (If you haven’t checked my astrology blog yet, then here’s the link!)
Sketching is another area I need to focus at. How can I perfect the art without practice? So no more procrastination and starting today, I put my plan into action. Here’s the sketch that I made today:
This is the first time I have sketched a face and used pencil colours on it. Though there is room for improvement but I am still pleased with the result, considering the long gap. What you guys think of it? Do share in the comments below.
