As I mentioned, I find it difficult to do. Many of my fellow bloggers jumped in agreeing with my assertions about the importance of regular sketching and drawing and with suggestions about how I could do it without attracting undue attention. I was impressed with their enthusiasm and with the ideas presented...... But aside from watching and practicing along with my SMARTFLIX DVD of Glen Vilppu drawing spheres, I did little drawing.
Then suddenly an email popped up from cyberspace (actually from something called Art House) and here was a neat idea which would sort of nudge me and encourage me to sketch. It was serendipitous. It was a voice from the void................ Okay ............ It was a coincidence........ but I signed up and now I've just received my little Moleskine sketchbook so I'm ready to "play".
As you can see the "Moleskine" notebook is small - purse sized! I think about 3" x 5". The first "person" I sketched was Rocky, our white Pitt Bull Terrier.
-----See ya... I'm off to try to sketch everyone I know!
As an aside, if you live in or near Simi Valley, CA, I have some paintings showing at the SIMI VALLEY SENIOR CITIZENS' CENTER (3900 Avenida Simi Simi Valley 39063) along with artist friends from the San Fernando Valley Art Club. The paintings will be there for the month of December. All art can be purchased by contacting the artist whose contact information is listed next to the paintings.
