I haven’t posted anything new from my sketchbook in quite awhile. The truth is I haven’t spent a lot of time experimenting in my sketchbook until just recently.
I had some catching up to do with a calendar for May,
and a calendar for June.
My vision for June was berries since they are usually in season this month, so I sketched and painted a page with strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries in mind. When I was finished, I liked the page so much, I decided I couldn’t cover it up.
So I ended up doing another page, similar in style to cover up with my calendar pieces.
I’ve also been working on quite a few flower sketches lately too.
I really love working like this, starting out with a pencil sketch using a Verithin pencil, adding some color with acrylic or watercolor paints, and finishing off with some dimension by adding pen and colored pencil.
I have missed experimenting in my sketchbook, so I’m happy to have the time and energy and inspiration again. I have at least three more pages in progress, and lots of ideas to fill up many more pages. Feels great to be dreaming up and illustrating my own ideas again, outside of an assignment or a homework deadline.
Thanks for stopping by!
