Observation and quote or "I can scan!"

From our Sketchbook reading,
"If it is not as satisfying a start as you would have liked, don't be critical—that's where you are—face it. Just turn the page and start another. All those faculties that are required to make a more satisfying sketch are being awakened—even now—as you search for a new subject and begin to sketch."
I liked this one because it encourages me not to become precious or self-conscious with my sketches by pushing through each page. It's interesting to me because it places importance on the process, which is something I've recently been exploring. It also addresses pointedly how to deal with a disappointing sketch—face it! Those two words are so cruel but once I can let go of the sketch I can focus on what is really important; observation; intuition; creativity; practice! Its still hard and I haven't been sketching everyday so I hope I will change that and get better!

That said, here are images from the first pages...

 The sketchbook is really too big for my scanner lol. But at least my scanner scans! (If you own a Canon printer and lost the software CD, another Canon printer's CD will work if it has the same software! Then just dl the driver from the Canon website) See ya!
