110205 A non sketching day

Saturday was the first Saturday this year that I haven't specifically gone out to sketch. It was a day dedicated to spending quality time wiht a very special friend who has just moved to Sydney!

I did these while waiting for her to turn up in the morning....

Then I managed a quick reflex sketch while having a good chat at T2 for afternoon tea. While o it can seem a bit rude to sketch while a friend is talking to you...in fact I find it is a wonderful way to remember the conversation. If I ask my friends to tell me all about something, I sketch (nothing that I really have to concentrate on) and listen at the same time and then that conversation is recorded forever in my sketchbook - every time I look at the sketch I remember the conversation. It is amazing how many of my sketches are coded in this way ( a secret code that no one can ever crack!!!)

At dinner I was able to sketch as well (though I didn't do the Garlic Chicken dish) so my non-sketching day produced 3 double page spreads without me making much of an effort... if you do it often enough it becomes a habit and your friends get used to it!(though I have to admit that I do have very special and patient friends!!!)

  1. Do you add your color while sketching or later then, Liz?
