Yesterday I picked up a rather funny all graphite pencil that was in a a pack my son has, and doodled while waiting on Taede returning from the take away pizza establishment. Piper was watching tv, tired and sleepy and yet mesmerised. So I thought I'd have a quick sketch of her. I reckon it could very well be 10 years or so since I drew something 'real' as opposed to just dawdled with things in my head.
I've resolved to get myself a sketch pad and scribble more often, and get my skills back up to speed. I've always been the sort of person who has to be in the mood to create things, regardless of whether it's sketching, baking or other creative pursuits... the more I have to do a thing, the less it turns out as it should. Please tell me I am not alone in this?!
