My Goals for #30x30DirectWatercolor2019

I’ve been thinking about my goals for #30×30. If any of you guys are participating this year – maybe you are also planning right now? It’s an interesting working model – a 30 day marathon. A self-contained chunk of time. Significantly longer than a week-long sprint (for instance #OneWeek100People). 30 days is long enough to complete something […]

It’s almost time again for #30x30DirectWatercolor2019. The annual event where we celebrate the speed and power of Direct Watercolor by making 30 paintings in 30 days in the month of JUNE 2019.

#OneWeek100People2019 Day Five: Play Time!

On the fifth day, I just messed around. I was clearly not going to reach the 100 goal with what I’ve been doing the last few days – so – I gave myself a pass and just played today. Clearly, I’ve been out of synch this #OneWeek100People2019. But it isn’t about me anymore! It’s about […]

#OneWeek100People2019 Day Four: Acrylic Paintings

Artistic inspiration is a funny thing. I wasn’t planning on making acrylic paintings for #OneWeek100People2019. But after a couple days of my watercolors, I was moping around going – hmmmm what next? More of the same? I would learn something if I did it. But hmmmmmmm. I don’t want to waste time repeating myself. (Even […]

#OneWeek100People2019 Day Three: Going Direct

Ok – got some life-stuff out of the way this morning, and we’re back in the studio. I decide to return to the selfies with open with some ABSORBED LINE. That is, sketching in line with a pointed round, then, immediately, absorbing the line into a blocked-in shadow shape. Work fast, and the lines you […]

#OneWeek100People2019 Day Two: Selfie Series

Alright – time to get serious. The recent life drawing has been fun and games – I could do that all week. But let’s talk motivation. #OneWeek100People2019 is about everyone drawing together to share in the motivation. The group excitement. But also – the shared guilt. Nothing like making a big social media announcement to […]

#OneWeek100People2019: It’s on!

So it begins again! #OneWeek100People2019! All over the world, our little club of people are heading out sketching :)  That’s pretty fun to think about. It’s nice to be part of something bigger than yourself. I wanted to post another set of life drawings. Just to give a few more examples of how easy it […]

Mini-Interview with Suhita Shirodkar, #OneWeek100People2019

MTH: You’re a parent, (I don’t know how parents have time for anything!) and a freelancer, and I know you’ve had to travel quite a bit recently for life/family-stuff. so – my question is – Do you have any special strategy for fitting 100 people into your schedule? SS: The closest I have to a […]

MTH: You’re a busy person these days filming classes and managing your growing video channels. Do you have any special strategy for fitting 100 people into your daily schedule?
