I don’t know if I will be posting these every day but here is my sketch page for today’s prompt – Hats
I have a sketch page full of these really pretty hats and I don’t remember why I did them but I was able to use my sketchbook as a reference for these sketches, new and improved, of course. I didn’t color them in because I am supposed to be spending 5 – 10 minutes on them. I spent a little more time because I liked doing them. It was relaxing.
On the flip side of being relaxed. John and I have been watching Mr Mercedes on Peacock. Very suspenseful. I wouldn’t recommend watching it before bed or alone.
I am taking an illustration course over the next few weeks and we are given daily prompts that we are encouraged to sketch. I pulled out my sketchbooks and found the various eyeglasses that I have sketched and combined them all here. I have been going to my sketchbooks first because I have so much that I have sketched over the years that many times I can pull something from there, first.
I really need to catalog my sketchbooks. I have over 100.
This is the whole sketchbook spread. I don’t use the opposing page to keep each sketch clean and undamaged. This is a a sketchbook/journal that I bound from a kit from Innovative Journaling. The paper is Arches Text wove and it is very soft and has a nice texture.
It’s April and Easter is only a few days away so I am starting off the month with a few Easter critters. I had several blob creatures that looked like bunnies and this is one of them. I am working in a sketchbook that is made from a leather cover with Arches Text Wove paper which is very soft and is very nice to work with water media.
