Drawing is undoubtedly one of my most favorite activities and always has been. It’s difficult to say if painting is a close second or is tied for first. Drawing is definitely convenient and highly portable. Drawing is just an essential activity for me.
These are sketches from this weekend and last from little trips around the area. There’s Airlie Gardens, Moore’s Creek National Battlefield, and Oakdale Cemetery.
Not sure if I’m avoiding my paintbrushes or not, procrastination perhaps but then there’s a lot of other chores, art-wise and more, that keep me busy. As much as anything it’s having the block of time my mind likes to have in order to get wrapped up in painting.
For the moment I figure all the sketching is just researching and reconnaissance.
