I feel certain it’s not only my wife that wonders what the heck I’m doing, doodling on my own stuff when I am supposed to be doing what Others think to be a better use of my time.
I can only say that the (likely temporary) diversion into the visual over and above photography is a way to expand my vision.
I also find that, when I’m immersed in the lines and colors of a “drawing” on the iPad, other thoughts come to me. It’s sort of like classical music for the eyes.
Or maybe I’m just lazy like she says. Dunno.
Come spring, I’ll carry this into “the field” and sketch from real life. Maybe by then, I will have more mastery of my brushes and pens. If not, it still seems worthwhile. To me.
