Sketchbook!


Lately I have been totally into my sketchbook. I think it helps having a size that fits into a purse. I am taking a figure painting class at the Des Moines Art Center on Tuesday nights this fall, and the top drawing is a 5 minute sketch from the model we had. The teacher for the class encourages sketching everyday...and even though I know that is something I should be doing, it helps to have someone tell you to do it! So that is my little challenge to myself for the duration of the class...sketch everyday. Its exercise for the artist!

It's hard to get back into the habit...luckily you're not too far out from school. When I think sketchbook I think of sitting in my little cubical at school in the studio coming up with concepts for the next assignment. :P

So what did you think of Tracy? Hope you had a good experience the other night at the Art Center.

Buuuuuuut, to the point, your sketches look awesome and I'm jealous. :) Keep it up!

I enjoy looking at your sketches... this is something I have to get back into doing myself. I used to keep a sketch-journal, but it kind of fell by the wayside when I started selling more and more on Etsy.
I've been in a creative slump lately... keeping a sketchbook could definately help me snap out of it!
