Day 2 of 7 Art A Day Challenge:
I keep a test sheet taped on the right side of my drawing table while working. I roll the tips of my brushes on it to get a fine point, test our colors, shapes and textures, jot down notes, etc. Pretty soon I'm really working on two drawings at once. I'm falling and have no idea what's going on as images appear. It's a great way to stop thinking and just have fun.
95% of the time it's just a mess and I cut up the sheet into colorful bookmarks on which I write quotes and jokes. I have a LOT of books so eventually each one will have it's own bookmark. Waste not want not..
5% of the time these test sheets hold interesting art that comes from deep in there somewhere.
