Visual Journal Basics – Black Ink/White Paper

Inspired by Danny Gregory’s video The Art of Breakfast…I got his book Creative License and started drawing in my sketchbook daily with just black ink on plain white (cheep paper so it’s not too precious to make mistakes on). Observing closely. Recording what I see (not what I think I see). Not going for perfection. No erasing. Concentrating on the details to capture some of the wonderful moments in everyday life that I take for granted and forget to see.

Here’s a picture of my breakfast. . .

one of me relaxing in my pajamas and slippers. . .

and one of my favorite vegetables, the artichoke.

Make art daily – and while you’re at it, have an artichoke.
