Quick Sketch

This is a quick sketch I did while waiting to enter a veteran's job fair in Tampa. I carry my sketchbook wherever I go, and I had about fifteen minutes to kill before they were letting job seekers into the ballroom.

Sketching is not only about documenting or capturing something, but  also about becoming comfortable with not achieving perfection.

Is this sketch imperfect? Of course. I did it as quickly as possible while standing up. But it's good practice, and it relaxes me, and that is the intrinsic worth of sketching.

Carry a sketchbook with you wherever you go. And buy this book. It should be on the bookshelf of every artist.
