A few sketches from my sketchbook

  1. Observational drawing (Draw what you see).Find an object from around the house and draw it. Decide if you want to spend 5mins,10mins,15mins,etc drawing that object.
  2. Doodle (I looove Doodling!) Start with a few lines or shape and go from there. The possibilities are endless. Use differing mark making techniques to create unique pages of art. The objective is to fill the page.
