Day 15 : #30x30DirectWatercolor2019 : Hump Day

June 15, 2019

Day 15. The mid-point.

We’ve made it halfway. The early excitement is burning off. Now we’re reaching into our reserves.

Starting to get tired maybe? Projects that seemed fascinating at the beginning might be wearing thin?

The big gains that we were expecting might not be visible yet. Because it doesn’t work that way. The leaps in skill are going to happen after it’s all over. After your brain has had time to write new pathways etched by your practice.

You don’t get a big reward in the middle of the race.


This is when you will be most tempted to cheese out a few easy sketches. And if you have to – if you need a break, to get a second wind – then you have to. Take a few days off. Or paint some flowers. Or an empty seascape. Or some clouds. Something where there’s nothing to stress over.

Or spread out everything you’ve done so far and post a snapshot of that. It’s probably looking pretty good if you step back :)
