Today is finally the beginning of Sketchbook Skool, a six week online class with a different artist/teacher each week. The class was introduced by Danny Gregory, of Everyday Matters. He is a great teacher with a wonderful sense of humor, and very kind words of encouragement for all of us aspiring artists. Our assignment this week is to draw, draw, draw in our journal. I’m using my freshly handmade journal of watercolor paper along with micron pens, and colored pencils.
I’ve used these materials before, but very seldom without sketching with pencil first. In this course, I need to go straight to the paper with the pen. It is rather scary.
Here is my journal…and my first journal entry for Sketchbook Skool.
