Doodling in my Sketchbook has over the years always been my companion art activity especially when travelling .
I always find a few minutes , sketching an interesting fragment encountered on my journey ...
Often sketchbook keeping gives way to my photography , especially since becoming an iphone photography lover I tend to find myself neglegting the travel sketchbook
But always return to my idea sketchbook for bashing about some seemingly unrelated pieces of inspiration encountered along the way that in turn always nourish my muse when I am ready to paint later on
I also like to keep a sketchbook for freeflowing and loosening up sketching doodles .. those pittle moments of time captured in a quick sketch ... these are not meant to be masterpieces but rather serve to let a loose line capture the essence of a moment, a fragment of a whole composition ... something taken down to be included in another composition later on .. Raw Sketchbook sketches... not honed , not trimmed,not worked over again and again ... just released onto the sketchbook page.... studies of a particular aspects, preliminary drawings , quick glimpse out of a moving car ... etc If you like join us in our RAW SKETCHBOOK STUDIO on Facebook ... or if you are a Member of our Art Community for Women we have a RAW SKETCHBOOK SUBGROUP on NING ( complimentary membership :-)

It is often the little moments of everyday life that lend themselves to a little sketching fun .. I cannot remember where I saw it ..but I thought it was fun .. doodling the stages of a breakfast in progress into your sketchbook .. Now I dont think I personally would have the patience for that ..I do not usually enjoy sketching the same thing over and over again .. although fully aware that practice makes perfect ..I prefer to move on to the next fun fragment to sketch rather then repeat ..but I am sure some of you out there would come up with some brilliant breakfast in progress sketches ..
For now I shall be sketching my breakfast BEFORE I eat it .. I guess another lesson in patience especially when it looks soo inviting :-)
Join me in Sketching Breakfasts if you like .... here is how I played
