Lesson 1 on Sketchbook Foundations with Liz Steel starts with the basics.... getting to know your tools. Which makes sense and this time I have kept my tools to a very basic setup. 10 watercolours, a pencil, brush and a fountain pen. Plus an eraser. Sometimes I cannot commit to the line and want to wipe it out. Hopefully I will be able to learn how to draw an ellipse this time around with Liz. Her teaching style is always fun and informative and doing a weekly class keeps me disciplined.
A birds eye view of my desk on this woyww. I am adding some finishing touches to pages from my holiday sketchbook. The sketchbook is almost complete and I am surprised that I was able to fill so many pages while out and about. The next photo is the beginnings of a temple sketch with an enormous ficus growing through the walls and footpath. Starting to work from photos as i finish the last couple of pages.
Next project will have to be Xmas cards and I will be turning to woyww desks for inspiration.
