Are you Any Good At Sketching???

I don't think that I am... unless I can see the item in front of me and then it has to be something relatively easy. Oddly enough, if I can't see it, I can't draw it. It's as if I know what it should look like, but the image never crossed over into my long term memory. Can you remember the last time you tried to draw?? That I can remember!! It was a staircase that I saw in a gallery years and years ago! I was thinking how awesome a painting would be of a staircase that changed direction and twisted and turned upon it's self. It didn't turn out well at all!! Maybe I should stick to flowers lol!

I did some sketches in the last days. I was visiting an ancient city, Cusco, Peru, and there are many narrow streets in the city. I used for sketching a little notebook, sized 4"x3" and a line pen. You can do sketches everywhere, by sitting in a cafe or in the park, while travelling too. It´s a matter of practice. By sketching you shouldn't care of details. Most important are the proportions and light and shadow, the values. Details aren't so important.
