Well, I wasn’t planning to post today, but lifting my self imposed daily commitment to blog by 5pm Sydney time has meant that now, after dinner, I have a moment to share this morning’s warmup sketch. Sometimes I do crazy rapid lines to get myself in the mood, other times it’s alternating between line and colour (yesterday), today it was a small and controlled abstracting of shapes.
Today it’s a Venice warmup – San Simeon Piccolo – but there is a Palladian reference tying it in with a common thread these days in my reading… correction, it is more of a Pantheon reference.
On both occasions these simple sketches helped get my creative juices pumping. This type of warmup sketch has become a vital ‘ritual’ in my work day!
Hope your creative juices are pumping too today!
PS. I’m not sure that I’ll have time for a post tomorrow, but as today has proved… anything is possible!
