I find my new daily drawing practice is most nourishing. There is great pleasure in taking even a few minutes each day and translating what you see or feel into the smooth line of a pencil or pen. Quick sketches where you grab shapes through your eyes and then let them pour out through your fingers, are invigorating as well as freeing. Drawing enhances your seeing, which enhances your enjoyment as you move through the world. It also helps any artistic practice, from painting to collage to songwriting. Plus its fun, and you get better very quickly, which is cool.
Recently I started a page on Facebook that was a supportive place to share your drawings and sketches and to glean information about the many ways we communicate through line, shape and mark. It’s called Daily Drawing Community, please press “like” and join in. It’s a cool, relaxed and happy place to celebrate the Power of Observation.
