Five Minute Sketch

Pen & ink, Sketches, Sktchy February 24, 2018

This is a 5 min sketch done in my morning pages. If I can’t think of anything to draw, I go to my saved photos in Sktchy, set the timer for 5 minutes and get moving. I set the timer for 5 minutes because I am doing them in my morning pages and I only want to spend a short period of time doing them. In the past, I would spend a lot of time and then would be behind the rest of my day, so now I set the timer and not use perfectionism to procrastinate. My goal here was to capture some of the line quality that I saw in Hockney’s sketches. And I love sketching sea gulls!
