I love to draw and sketch, and have kept sketchbooks for years! This blog is strictly for my sketches past and present...There is nothing quite like finishing a sketchbook and look back through it and remember all the fun things that I got to sketch! Or filling a sketchbook from a trip. Or just sharing your sketchbooks. It is like your own visual diary. If you are interested in getting updates, to to the right side bar and add your email address. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Workshop Supply List
I haven't posted anything in a while. Ken fell and broke 4 ribs and so I haven't been sketching!
hopefully i am back in the groove and have a few new ones i will post.
for now I am posting workshop supply list.
This is a list for the
upcoming workshop Nov 4-5.The time is
10-4.Sketching and drawing can be so
satisfying.It is one of my favorite
things to do.It does take a while to
learn because it all boils down to practice.I try to sketch or draw everyday. The difference being…a sketch is
usually fast and not real accurate and a drawing can be like a sketch all the
way to a finished piece of art.I do both.
Between now and then get online and Google for sketch you tubes and watch some.
You will be amazed,
Personally most of my
drawings are done with ink, but I wont have you to do that unless you choose
to. I think it is the best way to learn. To forget the pencil and go for the
ink. BUT..i have pencil on the list. If you want to bring ink feel free.I don’t particularly like ball point.I use fountain pens.
Also if you have a small bag
you can put your book/pencil/watercolor,eraser in.on Friday we will go to a couple places and
draw outside. You wont need anything else.
You can pick up small
inexpensive travel watercolor sets online or Hobby Lobby. Use your 40% coupon.
Sketchbook…heavy paper that will hold water…make sure it says watercolor or
2.Pencil (or pen)
set with brush (from walmart…hobby etc.)
pencils (I don’t use much)
6.Some pics that
you have you would like to sketch
8.Hat or cap (it
will be hot)
water for Friday
10. lawn chair or stool for outside
hope this is everything. It doesn’t’ take much even though I have a LOT of
stuff in my bag but just to start out this will work for you.
bring something from home…something small that we can all sketch.
I am excited about showing
you some fun things I have learned.We
will spend Thursday inside working with the books, shapes, and ideas. Tools and
supplies.Then on Friday I want to go to
a couple places for us to draw.
