Urban sketching is a popular topic on the internet and in the summer I love to spend my time, on location, drawing pretty much anything. When winter comes, however, I’m always at a loss because snow and cold prevent those activities.
So, I turn to “domestic sketching,” the act of drawing stuff that’s laying around the house. For me it doesn’t matter what it is as it’s the process of drawing that’s important to me, not what the product is. On this day I drew a shoe. I spent a lot of time blocking in this drawing because I wanted the proportions to be right but the ink drawing went pretty quickly once the locations of all the major parts was determined. Maybe I’ll draw its brother next.
