Having fun here with Lesson No. Three on advanced-level spheres from Mark Kistler‘s “You can Draw in 30 Days”. His book rocks it for beginning artists!
Kistler, an art-instruction host on PBS recommends using your sketchbook as a journal: “Feel free to write notes, quotes and anecdotes. The more you personalize it, the more you will value it, and the more you will use it. My sketchbook is the first place I look when I need to remember something I was supposed to do.”
His sketch book includes to-do lists, journal entries, grocery lists, airline times, and other non-drawing items.
Beside the date and time of sketching, I scribble things such as what music I’m listening to/what TV show I’m watching, who came to visit that day or random ideas for writing. My sketch pad is 9 x 12, so there’s plenty of room to draw and dream.
I can hardly wait to reach Lesson 30!
