I have been reading The Creative License in bits and pieces recently. It’s a book by Danny Gregory, who writes about how to start a drawing journal. It’s very inspirational and gives you prompts of what to draw and even teaches you a little about how to draw. Anyway, in some of the beginning pages of the book he writes about finding the time to draw, since many people (including myself!) feel that they just don’t have the time in the day to sit down to draw. His response is that we have more time than we know it, and one of his suggestions is to draw when you’re watching TV.
Well, Gavin and I have recently begun watching The Good Wife, via Netflix DVDs. As we started watching an episode the other weekend, I thought to myself, why not try to draw while watching? So, I got some pears from my produce box, arranged them, got my drawing journal, travel watercolor kit and went to town while watching a couple of episodes.
This is my first attempt, during the first episode. I am happy with how it came out, but realized I really need to work on my arranging skills to come up with some interesting arrangements!
Then the next day our internet was down and my arrangement was still there, so I cut a pear in half, ate half and then kept myself entertained while not having the internet to turn to:
