Prop a day


Using my recent interest in props as fuel, I challenged myself to a simple painting a day for a month in the effort to foster better personal habits. Though it was at times a chore, one which I felt at times I didn't have time for, I'm happy to say I didn't skip a single day. That said, I'm also happy to be done and able to move on to other interests and perhaps future personal challenges.

Keep an eye on my tumblr to see a few process gifs: tomscholes.tumblr.com

  1. Looking nice. I have been tempted in the past to try something this disciplined but have never done it.

    1. Good to hear from you mister ! I bring you up in the classes and occasion workshops I teach and remember working with you fondly amigo ! Hope you are well :)

      It was rough to fit it in each night, rougher still knowing I had to post it. Next time I might keep it hush hush until the end to ease the pressure.

      Anyhow, really helped to focus on a specific theme rather than my usual scattered whims.

    1. These were all done on Post-It's scanned at 400dpi - usually ending up around 2000px wide though I doubled that at times when I needed more detail fidelity.

  4. Nice one, Tom. Particularly because it's not your usual cup of tea. I only feel like I am gaining new skills if I 'go out' and do things I haven't done before.

    Hope life is good,
