Overcoming a challenging structure to sketch
Today in the afternoon, I went out to chill and relax. Sketching became my choice activity for I've found it therapeutic to observe and to sketch. Well, since I have been feeling rather stressed and being too preoccupied about the upcoming music exams, I decided I could do myself a favour by taking a break to do something different. I suppose it would help me find some new inspirations for my music.
I attempted to do a sketch and study of Ion Orchard. I made three attempts to sketch this building. The first two attempts were done with pencil and weren't satisfactory. After my second attempt, I almost wanted to give up because it was not an easy building to sketch. Anyway, I am glad that I had persevered. At the very least, I have learnt to observe and to sketch something new today.
It's not a good sketch, but at least I have managed to come up with something decent enough. More importantly, I overcame the initial self-doubts about sketching this building.
After the sketch, I met a friend for dinner and to catch up. Many thanks to my friend for her treat to dinner.
