Draw-A-Day Thursday 30th January – Experiment

As well as pushing your tools, it is also worth experimenting with styles, papers, interesting effects, either with drawing or with paint effects.

Maybe consider keeping a journal for a year, and find new ways to decorate each page.  I love creating surfaces for my drawings, maybe by rubbings, or on interesting surfaces, unusual papers, or with collage-work.  Look out for what attracts you.  A range of books I have found interesting are by the American Journal-Makers.  They don’t go for drawing skills, but have great fun creating in other ways.  I have bought some books while browsing on Amazon, and if you buy via Kindle or second-hand they can be very cheap.
