Sketchbook Fun After A Busy Week
Last week was a lovely but busy week leaving me with no time for painting. Along with a wonderful family celebration I also went down to London with several friends to see the Platinum Jubilee ‘Gallop Through The Ages’ event at Winsor Castle! So to help me get back in to the flow after such a wonderful week I’ve had a little fun loosening up in a sketchbook.
I find it helpful to sometimes have fun and play in a sketchbook, to simply enjoy the process of applying paint before starting on a more considered painting. This is especially true if I’ve had time away from my studio.
I added this quote from C.S. Lewis to the opposite page to my sketch as a reminder to myself to keep dreaming and experimenting.
“You are never too old
to set another goal
or to dream a new dream”C.S. Lewis
Loosening Up In A Sketchbook
In my short YouTube video below you can listen to me chatting, or perhaps rambling, about what I’m doing!
I’ve used a page from one of my old novels for the base of this very loose floral watercolour.
