My Weekly Sketchbook to Music New Year's Resolution:
My treadmill walk/run workout to music got me thinking; the sketchbook is a great place to workout creativity to music.
Listening to music while creating art is something that I have done over the years, but I never made it a practice when sketching. So I've decided to participate in an experiment to create "mood" in my sketching by using music as my inspiration. The same upbeat Pandora station (Fleetwood Mac, Buffalo Springfield, CCR) that I used for my morning treadmill exercise will be the musical inspiration for my first week of Resolution Sketching. I'm not sure what I will use for visual reference, but it will be fun to find something in the next couple of days.
Check back in a few days if you're interested in seeing what my subject matter looks like when wrapped in upbeat music....
