The 7 Day Sketch....


Here's a thought....

Starting this Monday, and for the following consecutive 6 days (7 days total), try to draw, paint, sketch, or create something. It doesn't have to be a finished piece, and should only take a minimum of time, maybe 5 minutes to an 1 hour. Try not to think of what it is you're going to do for the day, until you sit down to do it. Try not to overthink it, just jump in and start. A pencil sketch, a non-representational color study in Photoshop, a marker study of shape relationships, or even a small composition on a post-it note will do. The idea is to get into the habit of just creating and letting go. Don't tell anybody what you're going to do ahead of time, as a matter of fact.... don't discuss it with anybody at all. Just do it Monday-Sunday and post the results each day on your blog (if you have one). No pre-conceived notions, or judgments, just try it. If you do decide to do it, next Sunday let me know, but not ahead of time. Thanks.
