I scribble and scumble around to loosen up and get in a playful frame of mind. I make these hen-scratches (below).
It's just a way to sort of warm up and get a feel for the pen moving on the paper ...completely spontaneous and random. This very light hatch of scumbly lines is what I call the 'under drawing.' It is a good way to begin my process when I need some extra encouragement. It seems that the paper fiber along with the little swirls of all the scribbles give me an encouraging safety zone in which to draw more comfortably.
As I scribble around the page, I reach some point where I begin putting down marks for the actual drawing. The next layer sort of starts automatically and grows out of the under drawing in a very organic way.

THE HEALING JOURNEY
Hi, Chris here. I'm an artist and my goal is to help folks get out on the trail and make a creative connection with nature.
Hi, Linda here. I was born in Hubei province in central China. I speak Mandarin Chinese. I'm a professional interpreter so naturally my goal with Artist's Kayak is to be a sort of 'cultural bridge' for our international audience.
嗨，琳达在这里。 我出生在湖北省，当然我会说普通话。 我是一名专业口译员，所以我的目标是成为对我们的治疗之旅计划感兴趣的中国人的“文化桥梁”。
