Karla's Cabo Sketchbook

Keri and I took Karla (granddaughter) to Cabo for her graduation in 2013, and I am just finishing her sketchbook from our trip.  I found the sketchbook while there. It had gray paper and the ugly man on the front! I have never seen so many skeletons!  It was fun to do but i started it and then stuck back, so this year I got it back out and finished it.  I enjoyed reliving our fun trip.

Suzy ‘Pal’ Powell Blog

I decided in January to combine my blogs due to saving time just having one blog. That address is so there are a lot of sketches there, so when you see the date it’s not because I quit, it’s because I combined my sketches along with paintings. I sketch more anyway.
Thank you for visiting my blog.

30 days of sketching

I did the 30 day sketchbook challenge. This is a collage of the 30 days plus 2 days in February.
I have decided to include my sketches along with the watercolors and collages from  now on, instead of having a separate blog.  Now it will all be together.
We had a prompt for everyday. I did skip a couple days, due to not being home or not wanting to draw something weird.
I enjoyed the ones I did though!  I do love to draw while watching Television.  Drawing everyday has made such a difference!

30 day Sketchbook Challenge

We are half way through with the 30 day challenge! Each day we get an email with what to draw.
I missed a couple days but here is a collage of what I have finished.
It is a challenge for someone else to tell you what to draw! It definitely stretches your imagination.
There is only 2 that I haven't completed.

A new year! 2018

 Household item, Leaves, Round shapes, Lines and angles, fruit, and fish.

I am doing the 30 day sketchbook challenge to try to get back to sketching daily.  I am not sure what happened that I stopped but I have to get back to it. There is a prompt everyday so we draw whatever it is.

I missed Jan. 1, but I have up until Jan 7.

The end of a year...the start of a new one!

This is the end of a very blessed year! Happy new year to all!

While in Fort Worth we went to the movie  'The Star'.  A children's movie about Jesus's Birth. It was so cute!
