THE CREATIVE HABIT






Today is the first Day of Summer Sketching 2019!
I just discovered an inspiring, author, philosopher and dancer, named Twyla Tharp. I am currently studying her book, 'The Creative Habit' and enjoying it very much; especially since I have decided to pursue The Creative Habit of Drawing Everyday again this summer!

I'm a bit rusty, but I drew 3 sets of 1/4 turn, 2 minute gestures this afternoon
and I feel pretty psyched!


Here's the first set with the reference shots, if you'd like to give it a try.
I'm putting together a short video explaining how I do this exercise and it will be
coming out soon. In the meantime, you can  go HERE to see photos and a detailed
explanation of the process.  Feel free to use these reference shots to do your own
drawings, if you want to. If you do, a mention, #Sketchingeveryday
(and a link if you are so inclined) is always appreciated!





"Creativity is a habit, and the best creativity is a result of good work habits.
That's it in a nutshell ...
In order to be creative, you have to know how to prepare to be creative."
~ Twyla Tharp

 Happy Sketching and Creating,
Hugs, 
P.S. See a link to Twyla's book on Amazon in the side bar.
