AN ART SKETCHBOOK FLICK THROUGH

I took a week break but now I’m back with awesome posts planned!

I was always a creative individual. As a child I was always covered in colourful paint and create an endless collections of drawings. Before I knew what a camera was, I always used to draw. I didn’t care about how good or bad it was or what techniques I was using or how realistic it was… I just picked up a pencil or a brush and went for it.

However as soon as I started school everything changed. Once someone started telling me what and how to draw I lost all my interest. I drew because I had to, not because I wanted to. It’s not like it didn’t bring me joy anymore, because it did, but I found myself only drawing for school. When I finished my Art GCSE, at the age 16, I felt relieved – I would never have to go to that class anymore or draw how the teacher told me to.

But a few months passed and I realised I haven’t picked up a pen or pencil to draw since I left my school. I was furious! I didn’t want to abandon my art or creativity. So I bought myself a sketchbook and a smaller blank journal to fill up with everything that I missed out on when I wasn’t drawing for myself.

The art that I am sharing with you today is something that I would never expect myself to produce. When it came to art I used to have a very traditional approach – pencil, grey sketches, which I loved, but I never experimented further than that. Yet when I randomly found out I had an interest in graphic design I changed my style into more “modern” and by that I mean simple ink drawings (some can even be called doodles).

It’s still rare for me to pick up my sketchbook and draw for the fun of it in my spare time, but I’m getting better and better at it. The more I draw the easier it is for me to draw from my memory or imagination and I don’t have to be restrained to a picture or another artist’s previous painting, like I was in school.

  1. Love these sketches! I can relate to this entire post SO MUCH – I also did art GCSE and completely killed my passion and love. That said, it did teach me a lot about what I do and don’t want to do as a career in the future and about keeping hobbies as hobbies as opposed to jobs or subjects. Really love the last picture; flowers are always a favourite of mine!xx

    • That’s true it did teach me a lot and got me to where I am now but it unfortunately did kill my passion for a while… I’m so glad you like the flowers – I was hesitant to include them in this post because I thought that particular drawing wasn’t good! Talk about you’re your worst critic

  2. They look great, I love the simple style! I’ve always felt I’m not patient enough to draw, as I just want to draw the whole thing in one go, and not pick out the little details.

    These are so beautiful Kinga! I used to always create until I got to high school and I always felt like school never inspired me and my pages were always blank. I used read more, write more, and create more music before school. Now I’m trying to get all of that back.
