Sketching is artistic meditation. It puts me in my "flow state"
Being in "flow state" or "in the zone" in a mental state which, in this case, the artist is fully immersed in a feeling of energized meditation. I become fully involved with complete enjoyment without distraction; feeling totally absorbed in the moment.
Presented here are some of my sketches in charcoal, pastel, oil pastel and watercolor. Most were timed from 5 minutes to 45 minutes.
Some of my small acrylic paintings on other pages are also what I would put in the same category as art meditation as they were completed for the most part under 1 to 2 hours and finishing touches applied after.
