Out Of Tune

25 Mar

25 waterstones

I did my daily drawing in Waterstone’s Cafe, having a cup of coffee late this afternoon after getting stir crazy back at the studio. Daily drawing for me is like a singer practicing their scales each day. It’s fundamental to my practice as a visual artist. But sometimes the drawing doesn’t come out right, just like sometimes a singer will be off-tune. I didn’t get the proportions right between the woman and the pillar in front of her. Never mind. I’ll carry on…….

    Yep – good attitude. Sometimes sketches work and sometimes not, its the ‘doing’ that is important.

    The thing is: you’re doing it. And that’s more important than not drawing daily.

    It’s really impressive that you sketch every day. Thumbs up! 😀

    I love this attitude – it doesn’t have to be perfect. It’s the “doing it” that matters.
    Happy and safe travels!

      Thank you, Mary. It’s the practice and discipline that matter 🙂

    I agree, daily drawing is our scales…though I’m a lazy singer and like to get mine done in five minutes!
