I also found out that adding colour after I come home makes my sketches dull, If I add colour there and then they seem to be more vibrant and lively:)
another lunch break sketch, couldn't resist - every time I see buildings from unusual perspective I feel like sketching, drawing, painting them! I was going through some interesting posts on EDM Group forum...and I've realised one thing - sketching is just giving yourself permission to be happy, engaged and focused in that very moment that you want to sketch.
I remember every time I said "NO" to my inner aritst when IT screamed at me to stop for 10 min and sketch and enjoy the moment! So whan I've realized that, I've decided to do it. To stop at least one time a day when I hear my ARTIST scream and put down on the paper, in my sketchbook whatever it was that made my ARTIST feel light again:) I hope one day IT won't have to scream at me, I hope one day IT will take over because I know my life will be more simple and more balanced.
last thing - by doing it (by stopping and giving myself time to enjoy) I gain more respect for myself, for my own thoughts, for the way I am...I understand more of myself and can see that I have to stand for myself.
If I won't register what I see, how I feel...it will fade away because noone else will do it for me. It's about journaling my own life.
