Winter time is slow time - NOT! Still chugging away making copper boats as of late but in the interim on some evenings I've been sketching live models. Start out with one minute time limits and then work up to 5-10-15 and maybe 20min max. The one minute sessions are not easy but you do get a lot out of it later. 15min is the perfect time for me since I've been doing 15 min sketches for years. I'm finding I have time to get the person drawn in and then shading too, cuz once the time is up the model moves and is gone forever. Capture what you see now!
Just back from an amazing world travel to the country of Vietnam, first time ever, 30 days. Art goal set at a 15 minute sketch a day for everyday on the road. Met that goal one day prior, amazing what you can do when you set a goal and hold yourself accountable. Huge difference in what I saw in my work in just a few days, how much it changed, what your focus was. Sketch on friends, 15 minutes is such a small amount of time that you can capture in a heart beat. Sketches can be found under "Scott's Work" enjoy the ride.
