This week is a crazy one. Apparently sketching fruit is soothing and lends a certain calm to my afternoon (this is my third simple fruit this week). The shapes are simple and familiar, the colors bright, and the sketch, plus painting can be done in about fifteen minutes, which doesn't add any time pressures to my already busy week. I found today the act of stopping and sketching (plus eating the orange) gave a nice lift to my afternoon and gave me a fresh start at my task.
Go sketch. Trust me, it will feel good.
