I'm back! Sketching and blogging

February 8, 2018 | 16 Comments

Well, that’s the plan anyway!

I have been missing in action for the last month as I have been completely swamped (in the best possible way) with work associated with my current online course, SketchingNow Watercolour. It is the biggest course I’ve done so far on many levels, and although I am not working the insane hours I did in previous years (thanks to hiring a videographer) it has still be a mammoth task preparing a written version of each lesson and keeping up with the questions and all the amazing work uploaded each week into the classroom. I have also been managing my web developers so that we could roll out some big upgrades to the site. The work is never-ending but a lot of fun!

 


So it is not surprising that I haven’t been sketching and I haven’t even been getting out to my local cafe for my morning latte! The result was that there were a few spreads with one or two sketches and then just text from my morning readings.

And then I got even busier and didn’t touch my sketchbooks at all some days, so although I have still been reading each morning as usual, I didn’t record my thoughts for the day.

But even during this lean stretch I am still having fun with composition.

Now that I am on the downhill of the course, I am going to make more of a conscious effort to sketch random things from my life, and then once the course is finished, I am going to carve out some dedicated time for sketching outings.


Note: I will be offering the course in a self-directed format in a few months time, so if you are interested please join the email list for updates.
