Drawing - how to make waiting time enjoyable
As a young art student, I was hopeless at keeping up a sketchbook. The cost of the book intimidated me – I felt as though every page had to be perfect. Also when I did try, it was complicated because I felt as though I had to carry around all sorts of bulky media for every eventuality. But at last I’ve cracked the problem. I just keep a tiny book in my handbag at all times, together with a pen, brush pen or pencil. I accept that many pages won’t be perfect and that the available subject matter – as in this case – might not be all that preposessing, but it’s so fulfilling to have something to absorb you so completely at these times. I have a friend that carries her knitting with her everywhere and I’m sure it must be the same for her.
