These pages were all exercises in the 8-week “An Introduction to Sketch Journaling” workshop that started last week. I do every lesson I ask workshop participants to do: it helps work out the kinks and is great practice… keeps me on my toes! I love that.
Here’s a spread with some contour drawings.
And some Amaryllis I caught just before the last blooms died.
I started a new sketchbook for the class and for the first page I combined Liz Steel’s idea of painting out her palette with some notes to myself , stuff I’d like to remember as I work through the sketchbook.
Do you have a first-page you do for your books? Or a manifesto you think up? Does it change often? I bet mine will by the time I’m done with this book, but that’s okay.
