Sketch from Wednesday

Bookmaking, Pen & ink, Watercolor January 19, 2018

Good afternoon!

Below is a sketch I did with my sketch group this past week. We get together once a week, pick a subject and we bring in those items to sketch. I didn’t get much sketching time this week because I was taking care of some administrative stuff for the group, but I did get a little bit of time to do this sketch of a can of WD 40.

Also this week, I have been busy with projects and I have been making some sketchbooks. The second photo is of sketchbook covers of in progress. They were wet so the paper was still bubbly, but like stretched watercolor, it evens out as it dries. I blew up my own sketches to use as covers. I like to make my own sketchbooks because I can customize the sizes and the paper in them.

I will try to remember to post some of the finished books.

Have a good weekend!
