"Ink Blot" Sketches

This is a creativity boosting exercise that I learned from a friend.  First, I free-style painted irregular shapes on one page of my sketchbook and while the paint was still wet i closed it so that the shapes mirrored on the opposite page (created an "ink blot"). Then, I looked at the strange blobs of color and picked out forms that I saw and drew them in with colored pencil.  This is a great way to keep your creativity sharp, especially during the summer! I encourage everyone to try one! :]
