Rainbow Art Journal – Storm Sprite

After a (too) long break from creating art, I am determined to use Summer break to recalibrate my life, get back into the habit of making regular time for art, rediscover my creative mojo in the process, and hopefully restore some much-needed balance to my life. My gears and joints have all seized up through lack of use so I thought a good way of dipping my toe back into regularly creating art without feeling intimidated would be to keep plodding along in my Rainbow Art Journal.

I cracked the pages of the journal open and the first completely empty page was in the purple section. Since I unintentionally started the tradition of having a Sprite figure in each colour section, I decided to create a purple sprite and I thought of stormy skies and lightning storms. That is, therefore, what this figure is supposed to represent. I was actually surprised by how easy I found it to put pen to paper and draw again but where I really observe the rustiness is in my ability to manage proportions – even in accordance with my own wonky style – and my aptitude with drawing hands. I have really experienced a setback with drawing hands. This is frustrating when I had been making good progress in that regard but, knowing I managed to develop the skill beforehand, I trust I will at least catch up to myself again with more regular practice.

  1. Bravo!!!! Yippee for you!! Way to go!! That’s exactly why I like keeping a sketchbook/journal too – it’s an always open welcoming invitation to start, restart, try again!! I’m proud of you!!! ❤❤

    • Thank you! Yes, the good thing about keeping art journals – which I treat as experimental sketchbooks – is that there is no pressure. If the art turns out to be crappy then it doesn’t matter at all.
