Imagination Drawing

Inspired by Nina Johansson's challenge to draw from the imagination every day in December. I doubt I will manage to do this every day, but I did do it today. My goal is to be more creative and I think part of this is to draw as often as possible and in part by trying new things. I almost never try to draw from my imagination so this is a great exercise for me. I also have not made time for sketching since starting school almost 4 years ago. I am trying to find opportunities to sketch whenever I can. I did this drawing while we had critiques in digital photography. It was much better than sitting there for 2.5 hours while the teacher rambled on.



I know it is not the most creative drawing but it represents a lot of new things for me. First of all, I drew it without looking at anything. Second, I used watercolors in my sketchbook. Third, I drew an entire scene, which I have never done before.

I love the colors! This is very nice. It would make a great holiday card. If I saw this at the store I would buy it!

OH, I love, love, LOVE snowmen! This is quite ironic considering I live in the sub-tropics and we don't even get a flake of snow here. lol I love your sketch, Roshanda!!
