Hi friends! First of all I want to remind anyone who has not signed up for a chance to win the FabArt brush set I blogged about last week to go sign up because I will pick a winner tomorrow night! I also want to remind you of the importance of taking a little time for yourself every day to create! Drawing is a great option because you don’t need a lot of stuff and you can do it anywhere and on any budget. If you want to get fancy use colored pencils, pens and watercolor. Your materials are not going to make you a better artist but the practice of drawing will so grab some paper and get going:)
I did a little sketching on vacation and one of my favorites was a colored pencils and watercolor sketch of a palm tree. I recreated it in this real-time video for you. Feel free to sketch or paint along!
- Colored Pencils: Tri-Tone or these fun budget friendly dual ended crayolas!
- Watercolor paper or Watercolor sketchbook (Jane Davenport in demo-Strathmore visual journal for other sketches) I also like the 400 series from Strathmore and it is on sale here.
- Watercolors (variety)
Tip! Try sketching with the pencils on wet and dry paper! BTW I painted a mermaid on the opposite page of the journal, if you would like to see a demo of that you can on YouTube. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
