Liberate the Lines!

Mo, of It's Crow Time, commented in the last post that "your natural sense of line is so loose & wild & free, just go with it!" Thank you, Mo. And being influenced is the problem of taking classes, however, I did want to improve my sketching skill level and then meeting the community at Sketchbook Skool is just plain fun.

The last homework assignment was to draw your kitchen and pay attention to all the interesting details. So for Sketch Club, we drew my buddy's kitchen. This started out as a scratch page when we got into a passionate (!) discussion about sinks and angles. The first sink's outline is vaguely visible in the cupboards. I added some cross-hatching, and remembered the teacher's advice to just keep going. The mess straightened itself out, sort of. My apologies to Barb--her wall tiles really are square.

However, my hand seems to have a mind of it's own. It went wild with a medium tip pen in a 2 minute sketch and in a blind sketch. Watercolors added later.

Needless to say, I prefer the blind sketch. I'm being driven to abstraction:

Liberate the Lines!!!

Mo's right.

Yay, you go girl, your blind sketching is brilliant, it's the most direct path I have ever found from eye through the heart to the hand and is always surprising
