What to draw?

Some of my most interesting work comes from when I don’t know what to draw in my sketchbook – which actually happens often. These two pieces are an example of just that.

The one on the left I simply drew my paintbrush then later I felt the painting needed more so I added the paint on the top of the page which helps finalize the piece.

The piece below was the way the watercolor tray and pen were situated on the table in front of me when I was pondering once again what to draw.

What to draw? Start with what is sitting right in front of you.
