Debby's Sketchbook(s)

I debated where to put these. I have the first sketchbook thread that belongs to a book I pretty much abandoned when I made a sketchbook for myself. I started using my home made sketchbook for the 12 day challenge (which I did not finish. ) But, that's the book these sketches are in. By the way, I have left room in the sketchbook to eventually finish the 12 day challenge because I think it would be fun to finish sometime, but not right now. So, I decided to start a new thread with the balance of the sketches from this book. It's approximately 5 x 7 (actually just a little bigger than that) made from Aquerello Portofino a hot press water color paper. After that long winded introduction.



This was a practice piece from the book as noted. I used micron pens in burgundy, brown, sepia, purple and black. Then I used my Albrecht Durer water color pencils and added water. So fun.



This one just used burgundy, brown, sepia and black microns and the water color pencils. Reference for practice from the same book.

The book and the pencils was my Yule gift from hubby.

Looking good Debby, glad you are enjoying your new pencils. Hmm, there is a Claudia Nice book at 1/2 price maybe I should go get it since everyone seems to be agree on how much they like the author.

Hi Debby,

I'm catching up on newer journals here. Very nice sketches here - the frog is great, but then so is the mushroom. Great work!

Wow, thank you all for your comments. I appreciate you looking at my sketches. I guess I'd better get busy and do some more.

Re: Debby's Sketchbook(s)

Debbie, this is a nice pickup for your abandoned sketchbook! Why do we do that? I have lots of abandoned sketchbooks too. I'm not really sure why I felt the need to move on before getting to the very last pages, but somehow a time arrived when it was just "time" to go to a new one.

Re: Debby's Sketchbook(s)

I have a sketchbook that I adandoned due to not liking the paper for much of anything. Only did about five or six page before deciding that. Even for pencil its only mediocre. . . might be good for charcoal if I decide to give that a try though so I've kept it on the shelf. . . . so far.
