Embracing Imperfection!

Sketches by Brian Wright

Our next virtual sketch-meet is 
Sunday, May 3
12 pm to 3 pm 

The Theme 
Embracing Imperfection
with Continuous Line


A continuous line is one which a single, (mostly) unbroken line is used to develop an image. It’s often used as sketch exercise and is a great tool for honing our hand eye coordination. The quick free nature of the sketch can lead to surprisingly energetic sketches. It’s a great way to break out of any perfection syndrome, as the imperfections are what make the sketch so interesting. So, please join us in embracing imperfection!

A great method to use 
  • Start with a one minute continuous line sketch 
  • Repeat with a new a 3 minute sketch
  • Finally about a 30 minute sketch.
  • Set your timer and hold yourself to it. 

You’ll see a dramatic increase in observation skills. It’s amazing how long three minutes can seem. Once the 30 minutes is up, add color or refine details further if you wish. Post all three, it’ll be great to see the results!

Please post your sketches to our Facebook group at 2:45 - 3:00pm. Also, please post to our Instagram group. Short descriptions or comments on your observations are encouraged.



Please include #USkathome and #USkChicago in your caption. 
Discussion to follow!
