Sketchbook Sunday & the messiest art product ever!

Hi friends! Before I get into this weeks Sketchbook Sunday Time-lapse I want to inform you of a glitch that is affecting some students on the Teachable platform where I host my online classes. If you are having trouble accessing a class you bought recently please email me at artstudiosofbangor@yahoo.com so I can fix it. The problem is not widespread but I wanted to make sure you were aware if you had trouble accessing a class you recently purchased. I am here to help:)

OK, now on to today’s mess… er, I mean project!

I think keeping a curious mind is important to everyone especially artists, and trying something new and novel is a good way to do that. When I saw a pot of charcoal powder at the art store I was intrigued and decided to buy some to try… and now, here is the rest of the story…

Supplies:

The real-time version of this tutorial is now up in Critique Club. Critique club is a group in my school were members can post up to two paintings a month they are working on and get an in-depth, personalized critique from me as well as encouraging feedback from other members. If that sounds like something that would be useful to you then you can learn more here. It costs $5 a month and you also get two real-time demos from my sketchbook Sunday series per month so you can watch over my shoulder as I work through the challenges I personally go through in my Sketchbook Sunday growth work.  I think it can be really helpful to see others confront challenges and plow through them and see what works and what doesn’t. I think it gives people courage to try and not worry about perfection, just growing skills and getting better than you were yesterday.

Art takes time and practice to get where you want to be and if you are lucky you will look for new challenges as you reach previous ones. Embrace the failures and the successes! You either succeed or you learn and that sounds like a win-win to me! Happy crafting!
