Sketching Your World

Sketching is a great way to get those new brain cells multiplying.

Sketching helps me to be more observant of my environment, to live in the moment, to see it’s beauty. Sketching stimulates the emotion of gratitute. It puts me in a place of being amazed at God’s greateness and goodness. 

It helps keep me balanced, stops negative thoughts and stimulates creativity.

While sketching, I try not to concern myself too much with perfection, just wanting to capture the moment, the feel, the memory. My brain will do the rest. The more I sketch, the better I get at it and the faster I can connect with the subject and put onto paper  what I see. 

Here are a few sketches from my sketch book.

  1. Love the challenge to pay attention to details and capture the memory. Sketching is good for the brain – I need to pick up my pencil.
