SketchBook Pages


Sketching daily is really important - it's a warm-up exercise, like starting my daily violin practise with the scales.

I take five blank sheets and fill those up. I draw things and people around me, or images from the day's newspaper or from a sports magazine. The daily drawings, aside from for loosening up , are for developing observation and understanding postures and perspectives. The starting premise isn't to create 'beautiful drawings', though I'm, naturally, very thrilled when they turn out well.

On some days the drawing is awful. On some days it just sings. On all days, though, I draw.

Yes tis good to draw everyday. My Grandad used to say the same thing to me. It's like a form of meditation.

Yes, it is. Meditation in action, I think they call it.
