Brush Sketch

Ron has posted some pages from his sketch book, which are always great. I got to thinking that I don't really keep a sketch book but, rather, keep a log of pots I'm making, sizes, weights, etc. Before I do my decorating I make some brush sketches like this one either on tracing/vellum or newsprint. This particular drawing ended up on the 'fridge next to the stove one day and I haven't moved it, hence spaghetti sauce spatter. (my apologies)

I've never been able to keep a sketchbook like Ron's. I've always had trouble drawing pots or patterns with a pencil/pen. I tend to "sketch" my pots on the wheel, and my patterns evolve on the pots as well. I always envy those with good sketchbooks...
