A Sketch a Day


I have been a morning person since my childhood. Much of my Drawings/Paintings are done during morning hours. I believe those early hours of a day are ideal for any qualitative work. The quality gets deteriorated slowly and the mind gets tired as the day moves on.

Lately, I have been trying to follow Bapu's suggestions. Draw anything you see and keep practicing. I always keep a sketchbook in my backpack during my daily commute to work. When I open it on the train, I just commute straight into Art. The sketchbook quickly gets filled with fast few-minute sketches, page after page, day after day and book after book.

When I open my sketchbook, I notice that any given day's sketches are improved than previous day's. I sketch anything that I see interesting on my commute. Sometimes, after returning home, I add quick watercolors to few sketches. The colors dramatically change the sketch by showing some light and shadows.

Daily sketching is good for improving Art skills. A sketch a day keeps your mind away from this mechanical world at least for few minutes. Daily Sketching is a very healthy and refreshing Art Exercise that one should continue to do!

Happy Sketching!
