One Pane Only


Here’s something you can try…

Sit next to a window that has panes dividing the glassed viewing area.


With pen and sketchbook in hand, draw what you see within only ONE pane.

This acts as a viewfinder for you, limiting the scope of what you have to draw.


You can keep your lines within the rectangle of the panes, or you can let them flow outside of those lines as I have here.

These are from my daily Morning Drawings. It’s a great way start your day. Just simple lines and a splash of color. I have quite a few I haven’t uploaded to Flickr yet. In the time it takes to upload images to Flickr, I could make a couple of drawings!! To Flickr or to Draw, now that is the question. 🙂

Try the “One Pane Only” approach! Of course, with Sean Connery’s voice in your head!

    What a fun idea! I don’t really have separate panes but I do have different windows si I will have to try this. I love your triptych!
