I needed to do some crosshatching today.
The terrible news in Ukraine this week has my mind full or anger, frustration and helplessness. What can we do apart from show support and have hope.
The sketch came easy to me as I seem to be looking into the middle distance, hoping for better news from across the seas.
I find sketching therapeutic, focusing on the details, appreciating the world around me and distracting from the harsh realities. I must of spent over an hour crosshatching these lines but it wasn’t enough.
If you have young ones in the house a good radio to have on is Fun Kids Radio, which doesn’t have any news broadcasts. Not that I am saying the news shouldn’t be discussed but I am feeling the hourly news reports can be distressing.
