“GET YOUR SKETCH ON”
First and foremost have a Happy and Safe New Year from all of us here at Angela Bruch Art!!! 2021 a new year and time of possibly setting goals or resolutions. Perhaps you want to be more creative or sketch daily. Sketching daily for at least fifteen minutes has been on my list of goals regularly. It also has been one that is frequently not met! So what better way than setting up an accountability group.
I know sketching regularly will help improve my drawing skills, help me to loosen up and can also be good for stress reduction. Lets face it who doesn’t need stress reduction?! Sketching in a community setting was also fun to me. One of my favorite thing to do with the grandkids is go to a coffee shop each with our own sketch book and sketch or doodle with color or without. Who else misses sketching in community?
January 4th on Angela Bruch Art FB page Mike and I will be kicking off “Get Your Sketch On”. To participate commit to sketching daily for at least 15 minutes every day during the month of January. I picked this time because lets face it all of us have an extra 15 minutes. You can certainly sketch longer than that if you would like. Sketch during church worship and see what that leads to . It’s okay to sketch days a week. Each Monday I will post on our FB Angela Bruch Art page a greeting and encouragement. This will be the place to post any sketches throughout the week if you would like and encourage each other.
Intentionality is a favorite word of ours. Most good things in life just don’t happen but take repeated daily acts of creating greatness. If you have the best intentions and for whatever reason skip a day or two it’s okay. Try to learn what stopped you from sketching and just draw the line and restart the challenge.
So what is the difference between drawing and sketching? Drawing is done on drawing paper which is heavier than sketch paper. Drawings also may takes hours and have proper shading and details. They are also considered sellable works of art. Sketching is quick drawings of rough ideas usually with minimal details. They can contain textures are actually a great place to find lines that you like. Sketch paper is thinner and also less expensive than drawing paper.
