Sketching In Watercolor (What Makes A Sketch A Sketch 2)


What Makes A Sketch A Sketch


Watercolor Sketching

It’s very hard to keep up the habit of painting daily, especially when I have so little time reserved for myself. Most of the times I’m writing up these blog entries on my lunch hour at work and as the weather start’s getting warmer I will be taking my watercolors outside on my lunch hour. When I get home from work I spend time with the family, wind down and then make sure that the kids start getting ready for their next day of school. We all go to bed by 8:30 P.M. and wake up at 5:00 A.M. I so look forward to the weekends but I still need to put in that time painting daily. 

There are times when I get up at 3:00 in the morning and with everyone else asleep I have up until
5:00 to paint either a project I started on the weekend or sketch to keep up the practice of working daily. 
Here are something’s that have helped me.

My digital camera. I have a couple of good cameras but
mostly I rely on a Canon 21 megapixel with 12X optical
zoom. I usually take this with me when I go sketching
