Use Every Free Moment for Sketching.April 28, 2017
OK, everyone knows you can’t use EVERY free moment for sketching. But you can grab a lot of them and bend them to paper and pencil or pen…
I find that even if it’s late at night I can usually get one more quick sketch fitted into the day. On this evening I did a really quick sketch of Dick. I got “around” my issue with his eyebrows by focusing on his shoulders and the way he was sinking into the sofa. (We have a futon sofa that is just the right height from the floor for my short legs! I sometimes feel badly for Dick that he lets me pick everything out—like he’s living with the princess who had trouble with that pea.)
I think quick sketches like this allow us to touch base. We reorient ourselves in relation to our surroundings when we sketch them and understand the spaces and people we live with.
