Most artists wish they set aside more time to draw.
Drawing lets you take a moment and really look at something properly.
Regular drawing is a discipline, a habit that needs cultivating. One way to encourage yourself is to keep a sketchbook with you at all times. Using either pencil or pen do sketches of scenes or objects that strike a chord with you during your day. It’s not a quick as using your phone but you will get a much better idea of what you are looking at.
At Jackson’s we stock a great variety of sketchbooks, pencils and pens to help you with your sketching practice.
A hardcover sketchbook is particularly well suited to carrying with you at all times as they are sturdy enough to transport and to act as the hard surface to work on.
