There was some interest in this particular doodle when it showed up in the group of art supplies, so I thought I would give you a better look today. This is a large sketchbook...each page is about 12 x 15 inches. I am not sure what "A" size that might be, although I did purchase this when I was in England.
Normally, I just play around like this when I have a pen in my hand. I rarely go to anything which has a recognizable shape. Does this mean my brain is warped? My brain really works this way. I am considering doing some of these outside of the sketchbook and adding a bit of color, though. It is a thought.
I look at drawings/illustrations done by some blog friends, like Andrea, Jess or Laura and wonder why in the world I do not see things in a similar way. There is so much lovely documenting going on in that sphere and it is so appealing to so many people (including me). But it just doesn't happen in this head of mine. The only thing I can get into drawing is "bamboo sticks". This is very true...those I could meditate while drawing! Do you think this is strange? It is!
I can draft out a lot of things, but I also think I have burned myself out on that kind of drawing. All of those years of doing interior renderings maybe did me in. Do you think that happens with structured drawings like that?
So here are the questions: Why do you think I can't make the connection? What kind of drawing do you do in your sketchbook?
I look forward to hearing from you on this subject.
Have a Very Beautiful, Creative Day!
Sleep on it
