A peek into a sketchbook
Between painting and full drawings, I sketch a lot and have sketchbooks scattered all over the house, including beside my bed. I also carry one in my handbag and have one tucked in a drawer at work.
Sketches can be from life, from memories, from illustrations or magazines or photos that I see. As long as it keeps me drawing, that's all that counts.
I enjoy looking back at sketchbooks and reliving memories and seeing people that I have sketched. The pile of books rapidly accumulates and is added to with scraps of paper that I sometimes end up drawing on when there isn't a sketchbook immediately to hand.
