Sketching as a daily practice: Food



Sketching my plate at Squatters Pub Brewery in Terminal 2, Salt Lake City, Utah Airport. Micron ink, Winsor Newton watercolor, and colored pencil. 2016.

What did you have for dinner last night? Or breakfast this morning?

If you close your eyes, would you be able to visualize what it looked like…..or smelled like….or the taste of the saltiness or savory flavor on your tongue?

The beauty in making sketching a daily practice is the richness you find in the everyday if you just take a moment to absorb your surroundings. One easy way to squeeze sketching into your days is to draw what is on your plate.

We all need to eat, right? So, it is a fantastically accessible subject to sketch.

What are you waiting for?  Nothing more then a simple pencil or pen and paper is needed to do simple sketches, and you can take anywhere from 2 minutes to 2 hours to finish.

I dare you. 🙂 I would be curious to see what people come up with.

Happy Tuesday, folks!  Make it a great one.
