It’s a long time since I last shared all my sketches from ‘last week’. And in fact I know that you haven’t seen many daily sketches as a general rule for the last few months. That’s because I haven’t been sketching much at all. If it wasn’t for my morning coffee sketches my pages would be very blank.
Last week was a sabbatical week but I knew that I had too much work to take a total break. The plan was to limit my work to 4 hours and to allow myself some time to go out sketching. Well, sad to say, that didn’t happen as I had a re-scheduled workshop on Tuesday evening, so I had to work hard on Mon-Tues to prepare for that. I also had a few meetings and a lot to do for SketchingNow Watercolour. I managed to have two quieter days but overall I still probably worked close to 40 hours.
Somehow, despite a little more margin last week, I didn’t sketch much at all. I think this is the result of generally getting out of the habit lately. I am hoping that once my big filming days are over (day 2 and 3 for SketchingNow Watercolour are on this week) that I will feel a little more relaxed and able to think about sketching again.
Hmm, this has been a bit of a rambling blog post… I just felt as if I needed to give you an update on how things have been for me lately and why I’m not sharing many recent sketches. I know that it is just a season of busy-ness and little sketching, but that I will get back to it soon.
How are you going with your sketching? It is a busy time of the year – how do you find time to fit sketching into your daily routine?
