Sketching isn't drawing pretty pictures. It's more akin to meditation...itࡠprocess of quieting the mind, carefully exploring your environment, and connecting with a place or subject. In doing so, you delve deeply into a place襠shapes, patterns, values, edges, and compositionhow all of these work together to evoke an emotional response. You then express this visual experience in a way that is unique to you. No other activity will connect you to the visual world at a deeper level.
