It’s a good question. I am a partner in an architectural firm and so my weeks get pretty full. I also have a family of 5! Still, drawing is something I do for me (sometimes for my own sanity) so I make sure to spend 45 minutes to an hour once or twice per week after the kids go to bed and I draw, or paint. I fall asleep most nights while trying to finish one of Matt’s videos or some of the other folks I follow on YouTube or Patreon. Each weekend I probably spend 12-14 hours drawing, painting or watching lessons. It isn’t the fast track, but it is consistent and I don’t burn myself out.
Here’s to you finding your perfect schedule!
