An assignment is often meant to drive the creative process. Whether when drawing from life, letting your mind wander, playing with a splatter of paint, or working out an idea, there is no better place than in a sketchbook. This week's assignment had me scouring through forgotten photos from years past.

"Drawing is a kind of hypnotism: one looks in such a way at the model, that he comes and takes a seat on the paper."  -Pablo Picasso

keep sketching | life drawing & drawing f'16

The sketchbook is a place to play, to practice the lessons, and to experiment with materials. The ultimate goal is to enjoy the process.

Use contour when it seems confusing....
