Sketching the Landscape
Do you want to be a better artist?
Do you want your work to be more spontaneous?
The more sketching artists do, the more they learn to 'look and really see'. It is very important to train our observational skills so we draw what is there, and not what we think is there.
Ideally carry a small book, pencil or pen around with you all the time.
On many occasions I wish I had followed this advice. Unexpectedly we find ourselves...
Use your book as a memory aid....
The list is endless!
