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
Things are moving a bit slow around here this past week. I’m back to a tighter lockdown situation as COVID-19 cases are on the rise and I’m in an “extreme high risk” area. I have lots of unfinished pages but a few finished ones. Some random sketches and collage, little bits and pieces from my… Continue reading Sketch Kit and Color Blocks
Sketchbook Design class by Liz Steel is back and I’m so excited! I find it so much easier to actually get my sketching into a habit and routine when I know or can build on the fly better sketchbook pages! My first two intro lessons for the week, and a little collage since I’m currently… Continue reading Sketchbook Design is back
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.
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!
Continuing in my Sketchbook 2 tour, I have some classwork from both Foundations, as well as Watercolor on Location. This was a failed effort to paint a landscape while out on location. I realized that I still have much to learn, since I had no idea how to fix the issues I had. This wine… Continue reading Classwork & More
When I started Liz Steel’s Watercolor course, I started this sketchbook. This one is a Stillman & Birn Beta 3.5 x 5.5 inch (8.9 x 14.0 cm) Softcover. I wanted to do the lessons with two different palettes. I had purchased Marc Taro Holmes Direct Watercolor Palette, but I had never used it. I figured… Continue reading Sketchbook 2 – Watercolor
When I started Liz Steel’s Watercolor class in August 2018 I chose the Stillman & Birn Beta, size 5.5 x 8.5 inches (14.0 x 21.6 cm) Softcover. I bought her palette colors, and loved the idea of painting the palette to start the sketchbook. Why is this Sketchbook 1B, instead of 2? Well, when I… Continue reading Watercolor Course
