This sketch of the Golden Gate Bridge is my favourite from my recent trip, and the funny thing is, that midway through, I thought it was a total disaster. This is very unusual because most of my favourites (you can see a collection here) are sketches where I feel in control and in the flow.
Looking at the stills from the videos it seems silly that I was so concerned but it was because what was on the page was not what I was trying to achieve. In particular, there were some inaccuracies which were bugging me.
So the moral of the story is keep going and don’t despair. You never know when ‘a favourite’ is in the making.
(Please note: I use the term ‘favourite’ not ‘masterpiece’… this is a very important distinction for me when I am sketching)
