Recently, I have been working on some quick sketches based on shapes I see in my texture photos, or in stains and so forth around the house. According to Drawing on the right side of the brain, by Betty Edwards, this is a technique Leonardo Da Vinci  taught to his students. I have found it less frustrating to use this method than drawing something from real life, since it does not require rendering something three-dimensional into something two-dimensional. It is also a create way to boost creativity, especially when having a hard time figuring out what to draw.

Sketch of a little girl, with curly hair and a pony tail sticking up on top of her head, reading a book.

Sketch of a wooly white sheep.

The idea for this one came from a little weed I saw in the grass which was ringed with a crown of little white dots.

Determination of young Amelia Earhart by Dawna Morton
Determination of young Amelia Earhart by Dawna Morton ~see it framed

Inspired by Amelia Earhart, a young female aviator stares down anyone or any situation that might challenge her abilities–daring them to tell her she can’t accomplish her goals. Clouds, or smoke may billow and threaten to envelop her, the wind may storm and blow, but she will face them with grit and determination… she WILL overcome.

I got the idea for this sketch after leaving a galvanized steel wool scrubber at the bottom of my sink, leaving an interesting rust pattern.

sketch of a girl reading, adventure by Dawna Morton ~see it framed

A girl with funky, twisted, hot pink, horn rimmed glasses reads an adventure novel, as the textured background creates the impression of a magical glowing light emanating from the book bringing it to live in vivid imagination. She bites her lip in suspense as the scenes play out in her mind while she reads.

–from an interesting abstract pattern in the linoleum at my friend’s house
