Sketchbook Project Finished!

Yes, 30 pages completed! I really enjoyed this project though at times I was a little stressed about it and getting it done. Thought I would share a few more pages. This cork from a special dinner with daughter and her husband is actually stamped with "dedicated to the art" Sarah said I had to keep this one.

















Don't remember how this page got started but when you draw one caterpillar you just have to keep going. They are such fascinating little things, destructive I know, but fascinating just the same. I like this page a lot.















A local artist does these Spirit Keeper dolls. I have always loved them and so decided to sketch a few of my own. Maybe someday I will actually construct one. They are always so calm and serene to me. Comforting.

Congratulations on completing your 30 pages! Did you use watercolors on these? I am on a discovery mission on watercolors vs watercolor pencils. It just so happens that I am working on some caterpillars too this week. Wonder what brought caterpillars to mind - it's not the season.

Bravo for getting it done - and it looks like a wonderful, varied set of subjects. I really like the way you use grids as well. What was your theme?
