Morning Page

Bic Cristal pen, Pen & ink, Sktchy September 5, 2019

Every morning I do a page spread like this. I first learned about it from Carla Sonheim when she introduced us to The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. Carla showed us how she did a page in her sketchbook and over the years I have tweaked it to fit my needs.

I took my time this morning and wrote a little more legibly so that the format could be understood. As you can see from the “Ideas” column, I am still considering different formats.

I am working my way through the Chihuahuas uploaded to Sktchy so that drawing them from my head becomes 2nd nature. This is already Chihuahua #7. So that I am not spending too much of my day on these sketches, I set a timer for 5 minutes and usually stop, but today I added the shading with another marker.

Enjoy and have a great day!

Happy St Patrick’s Day

30 Day 30 Pages, Pen & ink, Sketches, Tombow March 17, 2018

We “celebrate” the old fashioned way, we cook/ bake and eat together as a family. My family is basically UK Isles. So I am a little of everything, Brit, Scottish, Irish, etc. My husband doesn’t mind (he’s Italian), there’s Irish Soda bread so as long as there is bread, he’s happy.

And no, I do not drink on St Patrick’s Day. It’s a day where I do a personal, anti drinking protest.

Here is a quick Tombow sketch and I updated Mack’s hat from the previous sketch to add green.

There’s a challenge going on with the Sktchy app where you sign up to commit to doing 30 journaling type sketch pages for 30 days.

This is my Day 1. Chloe was hiding under my desk to get away from the noise of work being done in one of our bathrooms. The workers are long gone and Chloe is in the kitchen right now singing for her supper….well, it’s more like chirping.
