30 Days of drawing

I'd like to draw but I don't, it's not something that has ever been part of my life and I don't really know why it should be! As much as anything I'm interested in what my 'style' would be - I'd love to be the kind of person who can capture an image loosely but I fear that I'd get bogged down in detail and accuracy...
Today I picked up a post on Facebook about a 30 day drawing challenge:

It isn't local to me so I can't physically take part but I am going to have a go to see whether I can develop the habit of daily drawing. And in the spirit of things I'll make a donation to my chosen charity, whether I complete the challenge or not. 
I don't intend to make things harder or embarrassing by posting everyday, but here is Day 1 'Something red':

This is exciting Linda! Thanks for sharing news of the challenge.

An interesting challenge and one that will also give you the chance to find out what your style might be.

Well, see? Not so bad! My experience has been that the more I sketch the easier I find it to loosen up and drop some of the detail - not my usual approach to anything. I like this list. It's not unlike a challenge I did to document your life with a daily photograph in which they gave you the theme for each day so you weren't floundering wondering what to capture. When I did my own 30 day sketch challenge, there were days when I really didn't know what to draw and it would have been nice to have a list like this to get my mind going. Good luck and post as much of it as you feel comfortable posting. We will be nothing but supportive! ;-)
