It may sound like an odd thing for a painter to say; but I really don't enjoy painting very much.
I much prefer the drawing side of the work. The initial drawings are far more fun, and convenient.
A pencil, pen, and pad take no room, pencils and pens are clean, drawings are quickly executed, and relatively easy to master.
Very rarely do I go anywhere without my pen and pad, but mostly, these days I take photos with my phone. However, occasionally only a quick drawing will suffice.
Ever since I drastically pruned this Fig tree, and revealed its trunks, I'd wanted to draw it. I got a bit lost whilst mid drawing but it hardly mattered, it was the meditative quality of drawing that mattered.
