Hi friends! I am still getting back into the swing of things this week. I woke up to a funny thing today, turns out Samantha Bee used a 2-second clip of my “Should we ban Glitter?” video from a couple years ago in her TV show this week! Here is a clip of that segment on Youtube if you want to see it! It’s only like 2 seconds but I feel kinda famous LOL! I think it’s kinda cool and I’m glad she didn’t make fun of my video because she is a comedian and I can be a bit kooky. But back on topic, I wanted to share the sketches I did on vacation last week. I think this one is my favorite:
They had some areas cordoned off to protect nesting birds so I got to see piping plovers firsthand. It was cool! You can see the rest of my sketches and a demo of a watercolor sunrise in today’s video!
Here is the photo of the sunrise we painted. It was cool to use my own sunrise photo!
Sketchbooks I used:
- Handmade sketchbook by Rosi (A gift from Yvonne, thank you!) with cold-press Arches paper
- Hahnemuhle beige watercolor book: https://amzn.to/3xIn6kv Strathmore 400 6″x12″ sketchbook/pad
- My palette is the portable painter and I put the new slim pans in the brush slot. You can save 10% with coupon code FRUGAL at Portable Painter
Here are some photos of the sketches. I share photos of art and sketches on Instagram so follow me there if you like that sort of thing:)
I hope you get the chance to do some outdoor painting this summer. Happy crafting!
