today’s sketch uses only 5 colors:

sometimes sketching involves sketching plans. that’s where trace paper comes in really really handy. i loved playing with trace paper when i was little. i loved tracing other images and making them uniquely my own. i learned how to draw really, by tracing coloring book figures. but now, i get to play with tracing paper for my job. how awesome is that?

sketching plans could involve a plan for a city street, laying out of a building on a site, an interior  plan for a building, or a plan for just one room, like this one:

i was sketching a new idea for the master bathroom.  what’s neat with tracing paper is that you can just keep layering it up and taking a little of the old, sketching up the new and creating a multi-layer idea!

dear tracing paper, what would i do without you? sketching with tracing paper is really  a great way to get the creativity flowing.

go ahead… you know you want to start playing too! 🙂
