Raining sketchbook

Art summer project: get a sketchbook. make random color splotches. make things from random splotches.


Start drawing with a Faber-Castell PITT artist pen (usually no pencil, just jumping in feet first with the ink), then apply color with Winsor & Newton watercolor traveling kit, and finally punch up colors and add details with Prisma Color Pencils.

"Empty journal seeks creative genius for casual fling." Thanks, Sally, for both the inspiration and the reminder of the adventures that lie in journalling!

I need to just sketch everyday. You MUST draw every day if you don't want to become stiff and wooden. Like any art, it require constant practice.
