Sketchbook Pages – Calendar and Close-ups

I spent another Friday afternoon playing in my sketchbook, beginning with a calendar page for March. It was fun to layer this page with watercolor, brush strokes, ink splatters, and doodles using the color we are all craving this time of year, Green.

The Sketchbook Challenge provides themes each month for participants to use as inspiration. Sometimes, it’s hard to narrow down ideas, so this prompt can be helpful to get focused.

The theme for February was Close-ups. For some reason, I’ve been wanting to drawing a set of silverware lately, so I used that idea for a mixed-media close-up illustration.

The theme for March is flowers. We have a garden full of flowers in spring and summer, so I have a ton of pictures to use for reference.

When I was trying to think of something to write on this page, I pulled a couple gardening books from our bookshelf. I didn’t realize there were so many varieties of flowers in the daisy family. I’ve decided that we are going to need more daisies this year. I think they will be good subject matter for my sketchbook for awhile, a good way to tie me over until gardening season begins. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Terri~I love the calendar. I would have never thought of the silverware & I love that you did! You are SO lucky to live where you have flowers. There is a drought here & we have no water so we are losing everything. I love your site. Hugz~Patti

  2. Love your calendar. My eye went straight to the green, and I thought…”Ahhhh.” You nailed it. We are all craving GREEN right now! I love daisies, too. I’m starting to think about all the planning I need to do!

  3. Love the green for March! What a wonderful idea to plant a variety of daisies! There are so many different ones, I may have to follow suit and do the same! I think the ones planted here are Shasta daisies.

    They’d be a wonderful thing to draw!
