My sketchbooks have, up until recently, mainly been used for observational sketches. For sketches of things seen in the world around me. Turning to painting, I am more and more focused on the interior life of things and places, on feelings and rhythm, on experiences and sensations I find more and more difficult to put into words –
To further me in this process of becoming less attached to outer realities and more attuned to my own creativity, I have decided to follow Cheryl Taves‘ 30 Day Sketchbook Challenge. She hosted the challenge last month, so I am not doing this “real-time”, but her prompts and wonderful meditations on working in a sketchbook is still to be found online – free for everyone to enjoy!
