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!
