I haven’t come up with anything specific to draw for my next piece just yet, so I’ve been spending some time just messing around in my sketchbook. This little sketch came together as I was watching this movie called “Apostle”, which isn’t the kind of movie that would inspire thoughts of flowers and birds but hey, I’m not complaining, I’m just happy to have a halfway decent idea come together. But I’ve recently noticed that I’m watching more movies and tv shows now when I draw rather than listening to music which is an interesting shift for me. For me music was always my gateway to the imagination but it is also how I always end up spending more time daydreaming rather than drawing. Movies don’t seem to do that to me. As I’m drawing I may look up and watch a couple of scenes here and there but for the most part it just serves as background noise for me. Sometimes I prefer silence but lately I like to have something going on in the background, even if it’s just the hum of a fan.
When you’re in an artistic mood and feel like creating, what do you like to have going on in the background or do you just prefer silence? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. 😊
