A bit of drawing therapyPosted: May 6, 2012
I had a bit of a bad start to my sketching session today. My drawing was all tight, restrained and dried out — little chicken scratches instead of flowing lines. Partly because I’m due for a trip to the art supply store to replace my Micron drawing pens that have no nibs left. As an exercise in loosening up I took out a big fat pen that did have some ink left in it and I drew this church in the loosest way possible, scribbling away and making a huge mess. It was physiotherapy for my drawing hand and it served its purpose by getting rid of that stiffness. When I felt better I tossed it aside and then did my painting.
