little doodles  
Taking a little break between projects. Recently got a book from the library that was recommended, The Creative License by Danny Gregory. It's nice, and in part motivates towards creating an art journal. I've always liked seeing art journals, and after reading part of this book, I'm guessing its because of the contour line style. Never made my own, though. I have this weird thing that, if I'm going to be spending a good amount of time drawing, it'd be better spent working on a project than on a random doodle. I don't know if this book will change that mindset, but at the very least it's nice to see all the drawings in it.

Anyway, one of the book's suggestions was to draw a chair, a mug, a table, and a person. Simple enough. I made it in a new sketchbook, but the paper is kind of thin and not meant for watercolors. I can still do it if I'm careful, but it's visible on the other side. I'll have to place my drawings carefully if I'm going to continue watercoloring in there.

I'd really like to practice composition, perspective, and color theory more though. I'll have to see if the library has some books on those too.
