I’m working on not being so agonizingly slow when I sketch. I had less than 10 minutes available for this sketch, and I decided to try it. I took seven minutes and even managed to get in some erasing. I didn’t leave enough room for the top of the gazebo in either attempt, though.
It’s not only the sketching where I want to increase my skill level, but the “seeing.” If I can’t “see” it, I can’t sketch it: angles, shadows, proportions, for example. I was standing up while sketching, which is also something new for me. I think I want a larger sketch pad.
