My 2008 Daily Sketching Blog


My Daily Sketching blog, Drawing Everyday / Sketching Everyday will be starting up again in only a few days! I've switched to the blogger format as I think it will be easier for me to update on a daily basis. Today I'm posting an entry from my January 3rd, 2008 Spirit Art Blog.
Last week, while googling some images of the Snowshoe Hare, I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a wide selection of my own animal sketches taken from my Drawing Everyday Blog. They got me thinking of how much I enjoy this method of sketching with pencil and watercolor! After perusing them, I decided to add some drawings on quality watercolor paper to my inventory of artwork.

Some quotations on Drawing:

"What do drawings mean to me? I really don't know. The activity absorbs me. I forget everything else in a way that I don't think happens with any other activity." ~ John Berger

"Drawing is the honesty of the art. There is no possibility of cheating. It is either good or bad." ~ Salvador Dali

"Make a drawing, begin it again, trace it; begin it again and trace it again."
~ Edgar Degas
