I like my sketches best when I manage to combine liveliness & simplicity – when everything looks easy. But nothing is more difficult than easy.
In my search for easiness I have found speed to be of great importance. And so to train my hand I am making a lot of quick continuous line drawings, using no more than 5-10 mins. I drew this scene from my car, as it is a cold (3 C) and rainy day.
I added a hint of colour at home – taking care not over work it.
I am making theses sketches in a small pocket size sketchbook, a book I have in my pocket whenever I leave the house. The paper is not really suitable for wash, but great for pen. And I love the square format.
