All these images are sketched in the Bright Ideas journal.
I am trying to sketch faster, draw more without an agenda, and also to play again
with colored pencils. I used to work with them as an architect and it turned me off
to them as an artist — but I want to revisit before I give them away!
A commitment to work with my acupuncturist to clean up from the medications

Great sketches Kate, I understand the way that working with something turns you off from enjoying that thing. I hope the pencils make a return, only because I’d hate to see work win.
Yes. They were used for very specific renderings. I like paint because I get to have the color I want at my fingertips. Pencils (crayons, pastels) limit you to the colors they are. We’ll see as I play with them!
