Sketchbook Peek

Technically, I don't think I even picked up a paintbrush this week, but I've been dreaming in my sketchbook! If you were to thumb through it, you would probably find more scribbled handwriting than beautiful drawings. I tend to write more about my ideas than to sketch them. But I do like to make little thumbnail images and grids--so small, but "so much sunshine (or joy!) to the square inch!" (Walt Whitman).

When I start to work on my large sketches and detailed drawings, I like to map them out on a big sheet of transparent paper; that's why you won't find them in my sketchbook. I'm off to work on such a drawing at this very minute.

Linking up with Studio JRU and Paint Party. Happy sketching to you too!

  2. It's so fun to sketch; looking good! Glad to be visiting from Studio JRU and have a fruitful weekend!

  3. I sketch my ideas in my journal rather than writing though. It's easier for me.

  4. I tend to write down a lot of my ideas rather than sketch them as well... I find that that way i don't get hemmed in to ideas and they see to develop so much better in my brain than on paper if you know what i mean... and I love love love the new profile pic... look at your gorgeous face!!!!

  5. Thanks for sharing your process!! Very organized planning!
    Happy ppf!
