I have a 5x7 handmade book of various papers

the butterfly and flower is ink and gouache on canvas paper


the cute frog is WC and ink on a failed wc painting covered over with gesso


the pencil sketch of Sandra is in drawing paper


finally the fox in unlikely colors in ink and gouache on WC paper


total for all might have been 2 hrs
thanks for hosting Sandra

These are lovely. I especially like the frog but they are all nice. Interesting idea to make a sketch book with a variety of papers.

What a fun group of sketches. I like that frog too, but I enjoy seeing the variety.

Most fun was had by you while the rest of us labored long and hard; you dashed out your ideas and swiftly executed each one with your special skill and creativity! The first one on canvas paper to me is the best. The sly fox trots in at a close second.

I think I like the first one best due to the jagged boundaries where colour fades away ... :)

They are all very nice! The flower with butterfly is my favourite:)

If I have to pick a favorite, it's that little green frog - but I love frogs very much, so I'm partial! :) I also love your sketchbook idea, very creative and a variety for all types of art!

There is a nice balance between the free ink marks and the colour patches in the pen sketches.
