If you regularly read my blog, you know that I have an ongoing habit of sketching each night so I was especially intereted in this article. Here are a couple of my favorite tips from Vikki:
- Mouse hole drawing. "If you’re stuck in a rut and lacking inspiration, try and view the world through a mouse’s eyes – how different would your shoes look when viewed at ground-height, bringing the colors, textures and even the tiny scuff marks into sharp focus.....Or how about a bird’s eye view – different again.".
- New Dimensions - "Drawing big and drawing small are very different disciplines. Try drawing to the dimensions of a postage stamp, then do the same drawing on the largest sheet you can find. Do you notice the different techniques and observations that come into play at each size?"
Take a few minutes to read the complete post. Then pull out your sketchbook and Start Sketching. In fact, why not buy a new sketchbook for 2014 to celebrate the new year.
