This is another drawing from my morning sketch practice. This time I chose to create a sketch of a pine comb using a photo reference.
I am certainly enjoying my new found dedication to sketching. It is amazing how much calmer and focused my mornings are now that I have began sketching again.
Once I am awake, showered, and dressed I take a seat at my drawing table with a fresh cup of coffee next to me. I open Pandora and select my favorite classical station, then turn the volume down so it is just loud enough to provide some low background music. I then pick up my pen and sketch for 30-40 mins. The act of “no pressure” casual sketching relaxes me and calms my mood. This seems to set the tone for the remainder of the morning and gets me off to a good start.
Thanks for stopping by!
PS, I managed to squeeze in a bit of photography during an ice storm this past weekend. I hope to publish those photos in a day or two.
