People always ask me how I find the time to do a sketch every day. Sometimes I take a lot of time to complete a painting (or ruin several before I post anything!) and other days I just spend a few minutes doing something quick, like a pencil sketch of my dog. There are also days when I stop what I am doing for a time (like garden cleanup today) and draw my activity. What’s important for me is that I draw everyday. In a great online interview with my friend Marc Holmes he says basically the same thing. He keeps a sketchbook in his bag and draws wherever he is. I guess for both of us the advice is the same. Just get out there and draw!
