Yesterday on the way home from the gym was a good chance to try to get back into a regular habit of sketching (what?)… I mean the regular habit of sketching out of the house during a busy work day. Right at the moment I have a terrible tendency to start work at 8.00am and switch off my computer at 11.30pm. A little insane I know… but it is just a busy period – ah! the joys of a freelance lifestyle. Thankfully the end of the total craziness is only a day away! I do have lots of little breaks during the day for meals and cups of tea and some days I even get to the gym in the early afternoon… but I am always thinking-thinking-thinking about my projects. Getting out of the house for a sketch breaks that. I focus just on what I am sketching.
So this was a random exploration of yet another Californian Bungalow – the standard stock in my part of Sydney. I started this with my middle purple pink Faber Castell WCP and painted over the top to tone done the pink-ness and then I started playing…just seeing where it led me. I like the limited palette and a colour combination that is not usual for me.
And you will notice the additions on the page just to tie this sketch into other trivia from the day.
Ok… I have done it. Finally… a short blog post! Sigh!
