 I love drawing. 

 

 THE most important and enjoyable part

of creating a new piece of work, for me, is

the idea behind it. I usually spend quite

a lot of time mulling over ideas before I

start drawing. Whether I'm working out ideas

for a painting or an illustration,

will always start with thumbnail sketches.

I picked up a useful tip for brain storming

ideas which I find really effective: take a

sheet of A3 paper, give yourself a time limit,

maybe 45 minutes. Fill the paper with as many

ideas as you can, reject nothing however daft!

If you can go to a cafe (somewhere away from home)

all the better! By the end you will have

pushed yourself and come up with a few gems.

Select your top 3 ideas and take it from there......

happy drawing!
