How small can we go?
How small of a sketch can we make and have it still satisfy that need to put brush to paper?
These are the questions I asked myself when I started the Tiny Sketches series.
Turns out, we can go pretty small.
The best part? I can do a tiny sketch in just a few moments and still be meaningful, like this one from Enchanted Rock State Natural Area.
Even better? Tiny sketches don’t require many supplies, so I can do one just about anywhere.
I started carrying my supplies on my daily walks and sketching around the neighborhood.
This really meant so much as I’ve had six leg surgeries — stopping to do a little sketch is good for morale!
Tiny sketches by nature force you to edit what you’re drawing — there’s only room for the essentials.
These sketches have really helped me grow my observational skills.
