Hi Sketchbookers, Diana Trout here with a drawing game and some thoughts about my sketchbook practices.
As I started to make these first marks in my brand spankin' new Rag & Bone Journal, there was a bit of intimidation. And then a bit of cussin' and then a huge sigh of relief and acceptance. I am rusty! Here is a video demonstrating a drawing game that I use in classes and taken from my book, Journal Spilling.
I made a decision in the early days of this Challenge to do all of the drawings for it in my journal. Warts and all, expect to see my drawings and sketches here. I hope to give you some information along the way as to why a particular sketch didn't work out and also why a sketch did work.
It matters not to me whether my sketchbook is beautiful. Although I completely understand why a person would want it to be beautiful and I have books like that. But not this book. I want to be able to see my growth over this next bunch of months.
Here is the completed drawing from this exercise. I think it's a bit overworked. But I was having fun playing and didn't stop. I love some of these shapes, though, and will use this drawing as a resource.
