new sketching tool

I saw this idea on an art programme about 10 years ago, and have always wanted to try it.
The idea is to put things in the box ( I am guessing a square box ( my favourite format ) for a square canvas etc...) and then to use the filled box to draw from, this works best for abstract starting points I think, but at the moment the horse still is hanging around, and my need to paint it is still strong, so into the box he has gone. I have taken photos as a record, but I think painting directly in front of it will be better.... and the pink will have to be ignored......or maybe not I will have to see how it takes me :-)
