Most of the paintings I do are scenery and landscapes as well as designs from one of my photographs so I really needed to do some sketching.... something I VERY RARELY do, or have done. I normally paint first and then do my sketch by tracing what I have painted.....
I wanted to start a journal so I am going to do some much needed journal sketching to go outside of my box for 2012 and see what happens. I have a small and large sketch book with black and white paper.
They will probably end up a mix up of sketches, words, ideas, etc. but that is OK.... I can justify the time being that it will be a great help to me as I paint, design jewelry, altered art etc. Just good ole
On Yahoo I have joined a group recommended by a friend where sketching prompts are provided. This is my first which was "My Watch", and I was really surprised that it wasn't as horrible as I had expected; which makes me more willing to try the next prompt which is a kitchen jar, tin, or bottle.
The scariest part was that first mark on the white paper....and the more I worked at it the more engrossed I became. I know I DO need an kneadable eraser which is on my list for the next Michaels visit.
So surprise yourself. Draw your watch.
