Making Time to Sketch
I headed up to my current favourite place in the world again today, the Silla de Filipe II, near El Escorial. The snow had gone, replaced by thick mist and rain. I decided to wait the rain out in the car. No one there, just the sound of the rain on the car roof – wonderful! I sat for an hour looking at the scene above, and decided to sketch it for fun, before finally taking a walk.
Sketching is a really wonderful way of Making Time to Live. You see things really deeply, and become quite relaxed. Check out my book recommendations (“Ben Recommends….”) on our inspiration page if you want to give it a try. I hadn’t drawn a thing since childhood before reading those books a couple of years ago, now I really enjoy it from time to time. I highly recommend it.
