Draw what you see…

What I’m learning at Sketchbook Skool…

Parked in Jersey City

I’ve started carrying a sketchbook with me wherever I go, so when I found a prized parking space in Jersey City, NJ this morning I took some time to draw the scene in front of me. I sketched using a marker rather than a pencil, which is a new concept for me and added watercolor and some colored pencils when I got home. In the past, I would have found all the imperfections in my drawing, and there are plenty; I might even have torn it up and tossed it.  But I learned to silence my inner critic, to enjoy the process and know that I’m learning and challenging myself; and I’m really having fun. So this week, challenge yourself. Carry a sketchbook  or journal and draw (or write about) what you see.
