Earlier this year, I decided to dedicate time every day to drawing in a sketchbook. I took a couple Sketchbook Skool online classes which gave me exposure to many ways of drawing in a sketchbook and establishing a daily practice. I posted some of my earlier drawings here. In the most recent session, we had one week with teachers Danny Gregory, Koosje Koene, Brenda Swenson, Cathy Johnson, Andrea Joseph, and Liz Steele. I’m posting some of them here to show what I’ve been drawing. One strategy that I’ve adopted is to draw objects that I see daily around my house. These drawings were all done with some type of pen with no preliminary pencil drawing and no erasing. I follow a rule that I learned from Tommy Kane in the first session of Sketchbook Skool – Always finish the page no matter what… even if it seems to be filled with errors. Find a way to make it work.
I’ve gotten in the habit of carrying with me, a sketchbook and small kit of drawing supplies in this Kipling bag, which I also drew.
