Experiment for Fun! – Try drawing the subject within its context, i.e. draw the areas around specific items. Some other sketch ideas: draw the same scene twice, but with different materials, such as oil crayons, charcoal, ink, watercolour, or pencils. It can be fun to try different things to sketch with, such as sticks, leaves, handmade brushes or household items (e.g. sponges, string, rags, knives, forks). Why not try different surfaces to sketch on, such as: wrapping paper, coloured paper, cardboard, fabric, tissue paper, or rice paper.
