What shall I draw today?

It’s National Drawing Day, which leads me to the old question – what shall I draw? If you find yourself wondering this, it can be helpful – really! – to think about things you don’t usually draw. It’s always good to practice doing studies of new subjects.

Today, I found myself thinking about moths; though I may sometimes include a distant moth in a picture I’m making, I never really draw them in any detail. I don’t know why – they’re every bit as lovely as butterflies when you look at them closely.

I decided to make them my focus for today by doing some moth studies. These were drawn in the Autodesk Sketchbook app on my tablet.

I think I may have found a new favourite thing to draw 🙂

Happy drawing all!
