You can sketch anywhere and everywhere...and should.

Looking back on my 2015 art journey, one of my best discoveries is that you can sketch and make art anywhere and everywhere....and the more you do it the better.  

My brand new Moleskine watercolor journal, my shiny new Lamy Safari fountain pen and a few other art supplies. 
So anxious to try them out, I used a cardboard box to practice. 
It's art.  It was fun.  The more you just let go, the better your art becomes.  
 Take your sketchbook with you everywhere.  Fix up a little travel pouch, even if it's just to transport your art supplies from the kitchen table to the couch.  It's all good.
If you follow me on Instagram, you'll see that I use the hashtag #practiceisart.  Practice is art.  Every little mark you make and every paint stroke is art.  Maybe good, maybe bad but who cares.  Just start.  That's what I did.

Being working as a research paper writer in one of the leading online custom paper research writing website, i too don't have any enough time to learn the art of custom research paper writing without any errors and mistakes. So, if i have a turn around and look back at the year of 2015 means, then there will be nothing new thing which i had learn in the year of 2015 except earning the money. So, once again i wish you all a very happy new year and also too encourage you all to learn more and more new things from the world.
