It is the end of the week and it looks like I have a lot of miscellaneous art that I have done throughout the week. It makes for a hodge podge of a blog post. We have charcoal, collage, painting and sketching.
A charcoal drawing from the Face to Face class. I have such a problem with charcoal smearing before I get finished. I love the immediacy of the medium but sometimes it drives me nuts.
Then its back to my journal for a couple more journal pages I finished. I incorporated a tag I painted awhile ago into the page. I always wonder what to do with tags and think this is a good use for them.
This face started with leftover paint from my palette. She looked a little plain so I added in a background.
I think it makes her pop off the page.
I am continuing to do this sketchbook challenge using prompts provided. This is 3 days worth.
Some days I want to do more than the prompt as in the case of drawing my sock.
Here I drew the lamp in a waiting room.
I wanted to also start using the sketchbook to draw things I am interested in like these elephants. To use the sketchbook as a place to explore ideas.
I have done these kind of challenges before and find that when they are over with I don't stick with it. I get stuck in that mode of "what am I gong to draw" and lose interest. I think that when the prompts end this time, I don't want to stop. I think if I am doing some of these studies that I will have created a new habit that I will want to continue.
Do you keep a sketchbook? How do you use it?
