During my 100 Days project I have made a few sketches of my paintings, prior to starting working on the large papers. I did not make sketches as much before. Selecting my subjects, framing them, deciding on the color or techniques was an important stage, but it did not include making sketches. Now I am doing sketching more often and many of these works are coming out quite successful and helping me with my larger work. I am hoping that in a year I will have a collection of little works, painted on remains of paper left over from my paper rolls.
