...is what i thought as i drew my first colour wheel for culturerun's urban sketching workshop with jun hao. granted, it was not a very proportionate circle, but still, it's a start.
ever since the 9am to 6pm (more like 7, 8, or 9 these days) grind started eating up my energy i'd lost the habit of doodling / drawing / painting / creating / writing / observing / daydreaming, and spending that couple of hours doing nothing but sketching in an inspiring place like publika was a sorely-needed change from the routine.
i'd forgotten what it feels like to sit in a moment. to block out the noise and distraction all around and focus on simply observing some random trinket, scene, leaf, or person that catches my attention and try to capture that moment in words or drawing.
i'd forgotten how good it feels.
and now that i've been reminded, i swear to never again let myself forget. a noble intention but it's better to try than to keep giving the i'm-too-busy excuse.
props to jun for being an awesome teacher although i'm still waiting for him to set up that urban sketching group he said he would. check out his awesome work (top title photo of the temple is by him too):
