Twinkling Sketchbook Play

Over in the Artist's Play Room this week, we are exploring shadow. 

With that in mind, I decided to start playing around in my sketchbook with Twinkling H2O's.

My sketchbooks are my sanctuary.

Sometimes you don't need a fanfare when you create.

You just need to splash some color around and make shapes with your pen.

You need to just let yourself fall into the process of swiping a brush over the page.

You need to scribble and doodle for no reason at all.

Sometimes there is no purpose to sketchbook art beyond filling a page with color and line.

Sometimes it's just an overwhelming need to hold a paint brush.

It's the process of making  a page come alive with color and depth that can be the catalyst to great art.

Sketchbooks are vital to creative fitness.

And if you're unhappy with what you have created, then simply turn the page and start again.

That's the beauty of art.

Thanks for checking in xx
