Art Journal Every Day: Sketching in Airports

ArtJournalEveryDayLogo-150If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here.  All of the previous posts can be found archived here.  There is a flickr group for sharing right here.  Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day!  No need to finish anything or even like it.  If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post.  Thanks!

I brought my handy dandy travel watercolor kit with me on this last adventure.  I had some flight delays, so it came in handy for entertaining myself.  I spent the time sketching the people I saw.

I don't consider myself to be a talented sketcher, so I'm always shy about sketching in public and try hard to avoid the prying eyes of those around me.  I'm also super nervous about getting caught by the subject of my drawings.  So I do a lot of sketching of people who are on their phone or sleeping.  I usually start out each sketch convinced that there's no way I'll be able to capture what I see.  And then I'm (usually) pleasantly surprised by the outcome.  It's a lesson summed up best by the following quote:

So, I'm going to keep trying and hopefully I will get better and better!

Here is this week's linky list:
