When I'm not working on a 'full-sized' drawing, I am sketching. Sketching provides the opportunity to
- explore your subject matter and medium
- exercise and stretch your skills
- test out new techniques
- explore textures, compositions, lighting effects
For an artist, sketching is the most uninhibited and free-est expressive moment possible. Sketching is an artform in itself and give the viewer insight into the soul of the artist.
