I am reading Daily Rituals..How Artists Work by Mason Currey. It is an interesting read. A page or two or maybe less written about some famous people and the rituals they keep or kept in order to produce their paintings, music, books etc.
I need rituals !
Saw this sheep at BedlamFarm.com today and just felt an irresistible need to grab a pencil and do a quick sketch. Jon Katz is the author of many books about dogs, sheep, the farm and human and animal relationships. I have read several of his books and recommend them for anyone that loves animals.
This sheet of sketches was done at the breakfast table while leafing through the ads in a sales circular from the local Peebles store. Women and children's clothing, shoes and home decor were featured.
Many faces just fall off the tip of the pen or pencil when I am scribbling.
And I need to establish rituals to make this happen every day, not just occasionally.
