Sketching Lying Down
Last week, I threw my back out. I went over to my studio, but couldn’t get comfortable standing or sitting, so while lying on the couch I grabbed a pencil and sketched a couple of things that happened to be in my line of vision. Here they are – can you see the pain in that line?
I recovered quickly, by the way, thanks to muscle relaxors and inactivity…
On another note, the Flying Pictures sketchbook exchange project is coming to a close. I’ve just finished the final entry in Nina’s sketchbook. I would encourage everyone to participate in sketchbook exchanges – it stretches you in new ways, and it’s just so much fun to interact with other artists in this way. Ours had the added dimension of being hand made accordian sketchbooks – we each added our own paper as the sketchbook came to us,which adds to the variety in the work. I’m hoping to do another one before too long. If you’re interested in doing anything like this, have a look at the Flying Pictures blog. I think you’ll enjoy the variety of work.
