Sketching Interiors Practice

Living Room Sketch

The month of February is all about sitting in meetings for me.  Fortunately, I am attending these meetings and not facilitating them. This gives me an opportunity to sit quietly, listen and practice my hand drawing skills. I ask my self to finish the image even though it looks a bit discombobulated and has imperfections, like the one above.  The goal is to spend time practicing not to come up with a perfect drawing.  Want to learn more about the benefits of practicing?  Check out this article The Importance of Practice:  Use it or Loose which is on the Prolificliving.com website.  Here is a quote from this article:

“Consistent and regular practice has more of an exponential than a linear effect. If you practice your dance weekly, you advance very slowly over time but if you practice it daily, the jump is not linear. It is exponential — in other words, it’s a big jump, a huge jump, the kind of jump that makes the difference between good and great, mediocre and magnificent.”

  1. Dear Stephanie,
    I just found your blog, and I have to admit it’s the cutest thing ever. I don’t mean that in demeaning way, but in an “oh things like this make me happy to be alive” way. I’ve been drawing for years but have just started keeping my a regular sketchbook. There are so many ways to use it! :O Interiors have always been tough for me, but you make it look easy and fun, so I think I’m gonna give it a whirl. 🙂

    Sorry for the long comment! And happy drawing!
