Inktober, End of the Road

Discovering Art


Sunset at the end of the road or sunrise and a new beginning?

With this drawing, the Inktober challenge is over for me. The hardcore folks have five more daily drawings to go. More power to them. Almost there!

How did I fare in Inktober?

Analytically, given my exceedingly low goal, I succeeded. 4 weeks, 4 ink sketches.

Creatively, the project was even more successful. I produced more art than I would have otherwise. I explored drawing with ink, which I would not have done otherwise. I’m excited about drawing more in the future. I have it on my calendar to participate in Inktober 2020. I didn’t make great art. I didn’t even make good art. However, there is more art in my life. That is the ultimate purpose of such challenges.
