I tried to do this last year and promptly lost the sketchbook. (I found it when we were moving but it was 10 months too late.) So this year I kept careful track of where my sketchbook is and it looks like I might actually finish it on time! The theme I chose is Prehistoric.
Prehistoric seemed a pretty obvious choice for me since I have been obsessed with dinosaurs since I was a wee one.
Now, sketchbook art is not really my thing. I love to draw but I don't consider myself a book artist so this has been a bit of challenge for me. When I think of sketchbook I think of scribbles and notes and half finished drawings, not completed mini works of art. I see some artists that like to share their sketchbooks on their blogs. That is not me at all.
I decided to keep it simple and limit my supplies to watercolors and pens and draw whatever suited my fancy. I think this is one of the more successful pages. The complimentary colors of orange and blue make this page really pop.
And so far I have been having fun.
I think some of the pages look a little plain; I might go back and add more to them.
I have been applying watercolor on the pages and letting them dry before drawing on them.
Ancient Ginko. We had a Ginko tree at our old house. I miss it. I am going to have to plant another one here too.
I love bones. I own 3 cow skulls and I created a little bronze casting of a T-Rex skull when I studied jewelry design.
