I like to drink my morning coffee in the living room. Instead of reading the paper I sketched what I see from the couch – what an improvement over the (bad) news! The moon was not sitting in my dining room, not until later anyway.
I don’t actually like to sit and give a movie my total attention in the evening. But often I don’t sit down and rest unless I have the excuse of watching something. The perfect solution is to sketch while watching. It takes a load off the feet, relaxing the back while still accommodating the restless urge to “do art”. For this I opened a art history book and copied.
