subway sketchism


Here are a couple of pages from my sketchbook. I did these during our weekly Toronto Subway Sketch Group.

If you enjoy art and would like to meet other artists, please check out the Subway Sketch Group in your area here. If there's no Group in your town, feel free to start one! All it takes is the discipline to sit and draw somewhere for a couple of hours. Participating in a Subway Sketch Group is free and is a great way to learn from others.

Really, our weekly Subway Sketch Groups are not even about sketching as much as they are about developing good art habits, which of course start with good discipline.

So even if you don't think you are a very good artist, don't let that stop you from doodling for however long you feel like, whether it's for a few hours or for a few stops. And if you happen to be joining my Toronto Subway Sketch Group, I can guarantee that myself along with other artists (some of whom were contributors to our book, "Girl Sketches") will be available to give tips and pointers. All you need to do is be open to meeting new people and have a desire to practice and learn, that's all. Success at ANYTHING is hardly ever more than that.
