Part 1 of my blind contour sketches from the RSC play Romeo and Juliet. ❤💫💏⚘✨🎭💔😭😱 Very interesting results I especially love the last page in this post! I was sketching a dance scene that could of easily been a fight. The mass of scribbles and layers of lines is just the best thing for me.

Last weekend, sketching and dancing with Morris dancers by day and then blinddrawing plays by night. :) I found this sketchbook (cover illustration by F.Humphris, ladybird cover) and thought it would be fun to set a challenge to fill it all that evening, to the Romeo and Juliet play at RSC.
Completely blind contour here I couldn't see a damn bit of my sketchbook 😂. An awesome challenge that encourages you to try and find the line you need. But by the time you have decided.. it's gone😂🤣. #rsc #royalshakespearecompany #shakespeare #romeojuliet #blindcontour #blinddrawing #play #acting #language #languageoflove #illustration #reportage #illustratedreportage #leahbooteillustration #illustratorsoninstagram #instagram #artistsoninstagram #art #artists #drawing #sketching #experiment #experimental #experimentalart #artmind #artplay #artfear #artfun

I got over my fear of starting on the first page of my sketch book! I'm pretty happy with it, despite it not being a watercolour sketch book!

I am soely at a loss creatively. Its like my brain has an amazingly detailed idea but I just can't make my hand follow through.

Even as a self proclaimed artist I have reservations and fear of doing a certain art style and look. In need of a children's book illustrator asap.

TBT-this was my very first. As a decorative painter, I never dreamed I would be painting canvas’s. I lived, breathed, and dreamed faux finishing!! Really! In fact, many finishers are like that—we are a different breed of artist. We got a little crazy in us to be climbing walls, and creating new custom finishes-large scale-for our clients.
Things always look different large scale..Perhaps that is why I was so intimidated when a past teacher asked me to custom paint a canvas for him. It all came natural at first, I asked for photos of his space and colors he liked; but when it came to painting a 36 x 48 canvas. It sat in the wrapper staring at me for two weeks!. I would look at it and pace back and forth; then I would try ignoring it. The clock was still ticking all that time. I finally thought—heck, do something! I picked my most favorite inspirational spot to work in the House, sunny and reflective. And started to go. In the blue part of the painting I used a stencil pattern. When I was done, I was pretty happy with it. I remember showing it to a designer friend—and she said something invaluable to me at the time. ‘I do like it, the colors, but why do you use a stencil? ‘real’ art is not done with stencils.’ At that moment, I knew stencils were my crutch, since I don’t really ‘hand paint’ my designs.
I don’t use stencils anymore(unless a planned pattern) and THAt, helped me grow my art to different, new levels. Now, whether that is true or not, it was a gift, and something I(personally) needed to hear.
I still have my ‘crutches’ I use in my work, but they are more hidden—it may be a tool, material, or the simplest of things...but it helps me in my confidence, as there will always be that little bit of fear, as I stare at every empty canvas—like staring at a blank wall-so to speak.
