A New Sketchbook
After suffering from blank page fear syndrome for two weeks, I finally broke out of it on Saturday morning with a friend of mine. We went to breakfast at Foxes, and returned to my studio for a brief painting lesson. I demonstrated the use of abstract study sketches for the purpose of exploring non-representational compositions that focus on design and value only. I used my new virgin sketchbook (going a few pages in – a new technique for me), and did a series of nice little studies. That was all I needed to get me off the precipice of performance anxiety.
