Daily Sketch - Day 4

Today's sketch is made up of separate images that I put together in Photoshop.

Each of these daily sketches has been spontaneous. I don't know what will happen until I start drawing. The idea unfolds as I draw. Characters, objects, etc. emerge. I am intrigued with the fact that we can draw without consciously thinking about it, for example while having a phone conversation. I am often surprised by what I draw while I am talking on the phone. An alternate awareness seems to take over. Also, it's a non-judgmental space. After all, you can't be critical of your work if you aren't thinking about it. Sometimes I try not to think!

By the way, here are some others who have joined the 21-Day challenge:
Becca, Gina, Jenn, and Michelle. Also Mark Frudd is doing weekly sketches at Diary Doodle Books.

I think this one is my favorite yet. It looks like a scene from the park by my sister's apartment in Boston's South End. Very cute!

This is great, it reminds me of Charlie Brown's mother - "wahwah wah wah wah wah wah." :)
