Everything is Sketchable!


Jerry is a bit of a hoarder and trash picker from way back,
so there is never a scarcity of things to draw around here.
Here is how I set up today's model. I think it helps to get it up
close to eye level and put a solid background behind it.


This is a 15 minute blind contour of a very cute toy dinosaur.
Blind contour doesn't necessarily create a beautiful drawing, but
it is a wonderful exercise in developing your skill of really seeing.

In my opinion, artists put too much emphasis on creating paintings
or finished pieces (a product) and not enough on practicing (the process).
The real joy for me, is in being in the moment, engrossed in the process of creating.

You can see more about blind contour in the side bar here.

AAARRR!

Happy Creating My Friends!
