Out and about sketchbook


I'm still trying to get the hang of having a sketchbook I carry around with me. I read the EDMers comments about their sketch books and get ideas of how and what to draw. Today I was sitting in the cinema waiting for the movie and I thought there was only seats and nothing else to draw so I thought I'd do the seats. I learnt a lot. I realised I need to pay really good attention to the repetitious details and to see the variations. It was really hard to do and very surprising. I was also surprised to arrive at my leg in the picture. It has taught me to be more open to possibilities in my drawing and practise.
Lots of love from Susan in Australia

What a delightful entry, Susan. I'd say your carry-around sketchbook is going to be a very rewarding habit!

Your line drawings are lovely: so simple, yet full of character.

This is an inspired little sketch, Susan. I hope you appreciate just how good it is.

Very nice, Susan! I like that you added your foot into the picture. Nice work!

What fun susan! I love how your foot got in the sketch. It still amazes how well I can 'see' something when I sketch it. Keep that sketchbook with you at all times-you never know when something might pop up and demand to be sketched.

It's so true that a drawing like this can help you learn to see things; perspective, like you said, the pattern of the seat layout, etc. I love to do stuff like this.

I don't think you realize how much of an inspiration you are! I'm so proud of you for actually using your carry-around sketchbook. This particular sketch says volumes about how we really can get so absorbed in the sketch and in getting down exactly what we see. Excellent job, Susan!!

What a good idea, Susan. And you've done a lovely contour drawing of your foot!
