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!

Painting au jour

Acrylic/Mixed Media, Bic Cristal pen, Carla Sonheim's 365 class, Collage, drawing cats for mom, Mixed Media, Pen & ink, Sktchy July 29, 2019

Here is another recent painting for your viewing pleasure…..

It’s a collage/mixed media piece. 12×16

Here is a quick sketch I did this morning using the Sktchy app on iPhone.

The young man had a scrunched up face and it made me laugh. He was sketched in a drawing box that I have reserved in my morning pages.

Kangaroo/gift

30 Day 30 Pages, Carla Sonheim's 365 class, Hand Lettering, Pen & ink, Tombow March 21, 2018

I signed up for Carla Sonheim’s 365 workshop for 2018. Everyday there is something in your email. A lesson, a prompt, a quote, sometimes an interview with a variety of artists (visual, musicians, literary). I have found that the random pick (two words picked out of a hat) are great for filling that sketch box in my morning pages.

Today the random pick was “kangaroo” and “gift.” Too bad snowboarder wasn’t in that bag instead of “gift.”😂

Today’s prompt also helped me do my #30pages30days prompt, too!

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.
