Steps on making a sketch plan:

1. Find a comfortable position, making sure you`re facing the best angle of the object you want to sketch
2. Warm up with a timed gesture sketch of 2 or 3 minutes
3. Look directly of the object and just draw what you think you see
4. After a couple of minutes, check your work so far
5. Keep looking back and forth from the object and your paper, and continue to sketch
6. Do the detail last
7. Add shading and a background to the sketch if you like
8. Develop a composition thumbnail for your painting
9. Then work out a color version with felt tip pens, color pencils, pastel pencils or anything else you can color a small sketch with quickly
10. After several preliminary sketches, do a loose one full size
