Sketching is addictive. Not only does it suit my impulsive personality , it also forces me to slow down and focus . For the next year I hope to produce weekly drawings both at home and on locations I visit.
I need to be freed from the disheartening grip of cameras and laptops and to be challenged by exciting new media. Watercolor is risky, but it is fast and immediate. Other tools like ink, water-soluble crayons and pencils can add texture. Sketching from life makes us l-o-o-k and that is a powerful enough reason to make this change.
