Sketchbook Practice #9

I am back for another quick sketchbook series exercise! This week are exploring pattern and repetition, this is one of my favorite elements of art to explore it could fall into line, shape or texture depending on the types of marks you make! So much variety and a personal story and history comes through when you use marks on your work.

Bonus sketchbook practice idea:

Look for marks, textures and lines everywhere in life and bring your sketchbook and fill up a page with your observations. Over time and practice you will have personal library of marks that are all you because you collected them and practiced them through your own experiences.
