Years ago I took a writing class where we were advised to first make a mess. I've adopted that advice as a mantra in keeping a sketchbook. The first layer of these daisies was ugly, a real mess. But, I've learned if I keep going, things usually get better. In continuing though there is also a risk of overworking a sketch and losing it. Thus another mantra for keeping a sketchbook, leave it.
