These hibiscus flower drawings were done over three hours with oil pastels. Creativity needs space. Demanding good results is a pressure that squashes creativity. I didn’t set a time limit, I just decided to draw.
These Hibiscus flowers are all sketches I did today over the course of about three hours. I think they will look gorgeous hung together on a wall with identical frames in a grid.
The best thing to do is sit down with some paper, something to draw with (paint, pastels, crayons, pens, stamps, anything), and something to listen to so that you don’t notice the passing of time. That’s how I get into the zone. I also love Alan Beck’s creativity experiment: lighting a bit of white sage before painting.
