But this year I felt led to sketch more than once a week.
Looking in Pinterest, I found a 30 Day Doodle Challenge, made my own little sketchbook and started!
I made no laws or rules … simply try sketch daily and use different media and methods now and then.
My pages are small, A5, and so the sketch should take 30 minutes or so.
I had a blast!
Some days I spent an hour or more totally absorbed.
Some days I just had to do another sketch …
and another …
My creativity levels just blossomed and bloomed.
I discovered the joy of new techniques, using water-soluble color pencils and my water-brush instead of my water paints.
Sketching daily stimulated me!
I felt alive.
Somehow, I could calmly think, pray, plan and dream as I doodled.
It relaxed me.
This was “Mother Culture” … investing time in daily nurture and creativity.
It was delightful!
I’m off to start my next 30-day sketch challenge, and my youngest daughter has just made her own sketch book to join me. We are going to have fun!
Will you also join us?
