A Sketch Turned Idea



Sometimes I'll start to sketch with a blank mind. I kind of just go with the flow and see where it takes me. The initial starting point is free and then decisions start being made, with the detail and all. They're fun little "workouts" but sometimes they spark an idea. This was a little sketch that inspired me to do a series of paintings in a more simplified human form. I'll develop it further and post the progress...until then!
