Today I took a few minutes to sketch my daughter while she was watching a movie. Usually, I will try to add a little value to my forms during my sketch exercises, but children don't hold still very long. So this little drawing stayed fairly simple.
I've decided to try to do small, five minute sketches every day in hopes of improving my drawing skills. Drawing from life is the best way to accurately see forms, shapes, and values. You don't have to deal with lens distortion or value inaccuracy from your camera.
