I have been making ink sketches with the grandchildren 5 and 7 years old. I offer them watercolours, soft pastels and ink. Ink! Did you bring the ink! Nice to work with but it takes some heavy supervision.
Efforts below. Some are mine. All the photos are mine and they add to the composition.
I’ve joined a creativity group with Jan Allsopp who I’ve known online for a long time. My commitment is for a month (at least). Committed to 15 min a day for the month of January – I’m working on a book. I’ll post more about the book as time goes on. Today is day six and I’ve produced a lot each day. I find it helpful to have such a strong focus. A simple idea, choose a route – i.e. the tools. Mine are the Google files (Doc and Slides) I’m using to write the book. In addition we create ‘cruise control’ – a voluntary frame in which to work. Some voluntary restrictions I’m using are:
No new sketches.
Work on the book proposal only, not the whole book.
Also good to see other peoples art – so far so good. It will get harder as the month intensifies.
