Sketching miniatures

I have absolutely fallen in love with sketching miniatures. I never knew sketching miniatures would be so interesting.

Flats are great for work
Sketching pancakes is so more-ish

Sketching is fun….

I start every single sketch with ‘oooo I don’t know….’ daunted by the blank page till I make the first mark. Then I want to put another mark. It’s like one step, then another….slowly creating more marks.

The trepidation is ok….healthy even….cos drawing is a learning process….teaching your eye to see. However your drawing turns out….celebrate it like I do….and keep practicing. Drawing is like playing ‘I spy…’ you become more aware.

Royal Academy doodle prompt of the day was ‘passport photo’
Clue
Yesterday’s prompt from Sketchaday App

Ever since the lockdown the RA have been posting doodle prompts on Twitter.

Recently I discovered the sketchaday app…..love it!

Take your time…don’t rush yourself….enjoy the mark making process. It is a journey….not a destination. (…simply had to throw in that cliche)

Note to self….

I am most definitely singleminded. (Just throwing it out there).

Don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing right now…don’t want to go down the ‘tunnel vision’ route.

I have come to realise that I actually need to force myself to take time out.

Y’know what? Being singleminded is not all bad. Focus is good. Bloody mindedness…now that would be a problem….tunnel vision in all its awful ‘glory’

Defo need to find time to smell the roses.

Trying to find a release…

This weekend has been a blur.  I have been working so hard that events have just whizzed past me and I cant play catch up just yet …still have so much to do. Trying to keep myself grounded and not break down (which tends to happen when I push myself). Struggling to stay alert at the mo.  This is hard…wanting to chat but too tired to…(this is what happens when I overwork myself…need to chat but cant cos exhausted).
