I signed up for a ‘Urban Sketching” art class. First art class ever. So far I am not impressed with what they offer (Sketch Book Skool) but figure I will pick up tips and other useful information.
I drew this picture at the Genesys Cancer Institute where my brother went through chemo treatments. I have never thought of myself as a real artist as I usually find clipart I like and draw from it adding my own spin on it. Well, this is a sketch I did on location and I have to say “I AM AN ARTIST”. I have been looking through my other sketches starting from 2008 when I started doing prompts through Every Day Matters. I have seen a vast improvement and believe me I needed that artistic boost.
I am looking forward to learning more on the ‘on location’ sketching. I need to concentrate on doing my own sketching and relying less on prompts from clipart. I need to get the ideas formulated in my head and then transfer them on paper just as I did with the picture above.
I am a work in progress and I am giving thanks for what I have learned so far.
