The first week of Buildings class, and I’m already behind! I keep promising myself I will NOT consider myself behind, because when I do, that’s when I quit. I don’t want to quit, I love this class far too much! (And the people! The people are so great!) I have thusly given myself permission to… Continue reading First Week of Buildings Class
Sketching Now Buildings begins and I couldn’t be more excited! I sketched my home and the first of the intro assignments, which I’ve done before. I’ve never finished the course, so I’m determined to do so this time! It is really interesting to see my own growth in these exercises. If you’d asked me, I… Continue reading Buildings Begins

I must note, I am challenged to finish because… Continue reading Foundations Begins
Sketchbook Design begins, and I couldn’t be more excited! A Sketching Now class by Liz Steel, this class hits right where I’m weakest! Design, and layout!
Starting Liz Steel’s Sketching Now Foundations, again, and here is my Intro 1 assignment.
Watercolor Class, Buildings Class, and a few other sketches are in this little 3.5 x 5.5 inch Stillman & Birn Beta, softcover sketchbook. What a journey it has been! I learned so much!
I started Buildings by Liz Steel. These first lessons were done in the 3.5 x 5.5 Stillman & Birn Beta. What an improvement in my sketching ability! It’s amazing!
