A small sketchbook being held open to show two paintings, on the left a lit candle against a black background and on the right, a figure looking out over the sea on an overcast day

A friend mentioned that by using a smaller sketchbook they were able to get past their art block more easily, which is a great idea. It doesn’t take long to fill one of these pages and it’s been a great way to warm up each day before diving into some larger pieces I’m working on.
