Yesterday I drew two sketches while at RSPB Arne. Today I drew three more on the north end of Swanage Beach. Sketching for me helps me practice the skills of drawing and observation. Also for my mental health I focus on the drawing which relaxes me too.
Now that all but one commission are completed I have more time to just draw for myself. Some pieces may inspire other work or become pieces in the shop after lockdown but the primary purpose is to draw for its own sake.
I have also recently signed up on Reddit where there are a variety of communities where I can share my work. I don’t seek critique as my style has developed over five years of practice and that is the way I want it to continue to change.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-4097-603b0cecc89df' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=4097&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-4097-603b0cecc89df' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-4097-603b0cecc89df'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
