Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
Late last year I finished my first sketchbook. Or maybe it is more accurate to say that this was the first sketchbook I finished. As in every single page of it has sketches. I’ve doodled here, and doodled there for years. I started a few sketchbooks in the last couple of years, also. Some for classes, some for projects. Eventually I realized I might have to get a bit more organized about this. I also decided I wanted actual sketchbooks, as in books made of paper made for what I wanted to do. Paper is important!
I started to number my sketchbooks. As it happens Volume 1B is the one that I finished. (Um, where is 1A?)
So I thought I’d make a fun little video flip-through of the very first sketchbook I ever finished. I started this sketchbook when I took Liz Steel’s Sketchnow Now Watercolor course. Most of this book is filled with assignments from that course, as well as her Foundations course, and Watercolor On Location course. I also did a lot of color and paint tests in this book. No organization here!
