Reasons behind drawing/sketching

Since there are some days when I can’t get into the studio to paint because of the weather, gallery work or other committments. I decided to do at least two sketches in my journal each day, to keep the mind sharp, to develop new ideas as well as playing around with current ones. Drawing offers something that painting can’t. Drawing/sketching is a lot more forgiving, easpecially when you consider how I paint.
