Fearless Friday, Sketching

Drawing and painting is just like anything else, it takes practice practice practice

Keep a sketch book or pad of paper handy and doodle while you’re on the phone or watching TV

When you see something you like, in a magazine or on Pinterest, try drawing it for fun

If you have an idea for decorating or party decor, try sketching it out

Even a bathroom remodel can be visualized with sketching

The sketches above were for some tablescapes and vignettes I was planning for a party

Keep your fingers busy and you will be surprised what you will learn and how much confidence you will gain-

Abstract doodling and experimenting with your mediums and supplies will loosen you up, and boost your confidence

most important of all-

Be Fearless!

    Like Pam, I’m no artist but I do like your suggestion for sketching out vignettes and table settings. I did do a few sketches for changes to floor plans when we built. All of your drawings are lovely Jenna………..Happy Friday.

    I am an artist. It is just something inside me. I doodle everywhere. It makes me feel good. Wish I had saved my law school notebooks…wow…I drew every student, every teacher, every desk, every everything…without even realizing I was doing it. Jenna, you are spot on about drawing and doodles…good for the soul. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    You are so right about your level of skill improving as you go if you keep at it. I also find that it also regresses if you stop doing it a while. I love your “veggie sampler’ — looks good enough to eat!

  9. My doodling wouldn’t look quite like yours! Actually, nothing like it 🙂 Not sure if there’s much hope for me in the artistic world.
