I need to keep my blog updated regularly, I have got the painting/drawing once a month theme, but that's only once a month blogpost (obviously), so I have decided to join the Illustration Friday challenge which is a weekly drawing challenge and participatory art exhibit. Every Friday a new topic is posted (based on topics you suggest!) and you have one week to come up with your own, unique interpretation. Anyone who likes to draw, paint, sculpt, doodle or colour can participate in Illustration Friday. You don’t need to be a pro! It’s fun to see everyone’s art – novices and pros alike. You post your illustration on your blog and then submit your illustration every Friday onto the Illustration Friday website.
This weeks theme is liquid and what better way to illustrate liquid then swimming as I have recently started learning how to swim, yes I know you must be thinking' whaaaat she can't swim', I know I find it shocking too, I used to learn how to swim when I was in primary school but then didn't learn out of school hours or after the primary school years, I blame my parents for that :)
I have illustrated myself, yes that's meant to be me, trying to swim using a float, I look petrified there and I was at first but now I feel less fearful of the water and I've only had three lessons so far, so that's a good improvement. I just need to practice more on other days too. There's my swimming instructor, Khaled, at the back shouting 'Come on Mandeep, keep your head down, keep your legs straight, kick faster' Yes I am trying Khaled! I will get it one day lol
