Some Dr. Sketchy's Sketchy-ness
I look forward every month to a local branch of a drawing group called Dr. Sketchy's.
I realized quickly the first time I went a couple of years ago, that it's great to hone your skills in a live setting whenever possible. The feedback and simple energy from other artists and participants can be a godsend for someone who, generally, works alone. These are a few sketches from last night. (Can you tell which 2 were done quickly on my iPad?) It dawns on me, also, to be grateful for the many people in our lives who, although they may or may not be artists, spend generous time and effort in their support of the arts in general, and artists, specifically.
I value the friendships I have made over the last couple of years, knowing that they are most definitely, these kind of people.
