Drawing Sounds

creative perspectivesWhen you’re sitting down to draw, do you pay attention to things other than the visual information in front of you? One morning at camp I listened carefully to my surroundings, put myself in the center of my paper and drew the noises all around me.

a page from my sketchbook

It was an ear-opening experience to translate sounds to the page and the more I listened, the more detail I heard. I wished I’d had a larger sheet of paper and some colored pencils!

This made me smile. I like slight differences between mumbles and actual conversation.

I never thought you’d get me to say ‘I miss camping,’ but this little drawing does it for me!
