There hasn’t been anything much here for 2 weeks as I’ve had a cold. I was only really miserable a day or two. After that, I was just listless and then developed a secondary sinus infection. So I’ve not felt like going out to sketch. But I started to feel an itch to sketch.
As I said, I was feeling marginally miserable, so couldn’t quite get the motivation up until a couple days ago. I did this sort of journal-like sketch. I thought the heart shaped potato chip was charming gesture.
After reading the Doodlewash blog where he’s drawing everyday for World Watercolor Month, I need to remind myself that location sketching isn’t the end all be all. I also need to remember the lessons of Sketchbook Skool, which are similar
I came back to art because of Urban Sketchers. I really, really enjoy finding places to sketch and doing so in the place and the moment. What I need to remind myself is even when I don’t feel like going out, there are plenty of things around the house and yard to sketch. Not everything I do needs to meet the criteria of an Urban Sketch!
That said… I’m feeling better and there will now be a flurry of posts. Just had a good outing today! I’m scanning and editing the images and photos and will write the blog post soon.
