To sketch or Not to sketch?

Yep, that’s my question.

I was creeping in on a discussion from a popular artist in one of my online groups.  The short version of this discussion was that she was informally accepted in a Gallery, but they wanted or needed to see her sketch books.  WTW, sketch books?  I don’t keep sketch books!  How do you keep a sketch book?  The poor woman was coming unglued.  Of course, their were lovely people a plenty on hand to help her in her hour of need.  But it got me thinking.  I wonder how many artists out there keep a working, bona fide sketch book?  I use to keep sketch books a long time ago, but not in years have I sat down and intentionally sketched for the sake of sketching.  And I couldn’t find them now if my life depended on it.

Have you ever kept a sketch book?

Do you keep a sketch book now?

Would it be a prudent move in your career to start keeping a sketch book?

I’m thinking that it’s a definite yes!  You and I should!

Don’t get me wrong, I draw and paint because the desire to do so is there.  But Come On, I’m not an idiot, LOL  And if by chance, in my wildest dreams a Gallery approaches me, I want to be ready!  And if not, then we will have some awesome coffee table books 🙂

I think I am going to dedicate at least couple of posts to this very subject…I’m a little rusty, but I am more than willing and happy to share what I know.

AND If you are subscribed to this blog and have always wanted to learn to draw but can’t?  This would be especially helpful for you 🙂

Be Well and Happy!
