Inside My Sketchbook #3

in art •  last year


I have been getting the paints out more and more and I'm loving it at the moment! One of my dear friends made me a sketchbook covered with hand marbled fabric and it had just been sitting there waiting to be broken in. It always makes me a bit anxious to break in a new sketchbook and I've been known to rip out pages more than occasionally. This time however, I'm going to try my very best to live with my drawings and creations that I don't like, which is a whole nother exercise in itself.

This is a few pages in of having fun and enjoying the medium of watercolour paint. I've ordered a new watercolour set, so hopefully this will turn into a regular occurrence!


As always, all words and artwork are my own and all photographs were taken by me - unless stated otherwise!

Love the patterns. I used to watercolor-paint. I still have my paints so I should give it a shot again ...

You should!

I love it. I always like the feeling of filling journal pages, it has a good feeling to it, accomplishment. I love the patterns and they would make lovely fabric.

Thanks! I'm trying to get in the habit of doing it frequently, as I feel that it's a great exercise!

It really is, I try to at least scribble out something every day, sometimes I find myself working on a full piece. Art is a sort of muscle and we have to 'exercise' it, right?

Very true! I sometimes look at other peoples art/drawings and wish that I could draw as well as they do, then I realise I don't even try, but it's true - we need to exercise our art muscles to be able to better express our creativity and improve our skills.
