I’ve been playing in my sketchbook and have a few pages to share with you. I layered watercolor shapes with markers. It was a fun and easy exercise that I hope you will try as well.
I’m always inspired by watching Shayda Campbell videos on YouTube. She has so many great ideas for filling your sketchbook. I love her style and enjoy her watercolor tutorials.
I painted simple watercolor leaves and flowers all over the page. I love the combination of peachy pinks and soft browns together.
Once the page dried I used my dual tipped Tombow markers for some detail. I’m always amazed how adding detail with a pen or marker really wakes things up. I tried to keep the detail all very simple but I did get carried away with a few of them. 😉 Looking over my page, I really like the simple flowers much more.
Note to self…whether painting or drawing with markers, you have to know when to stop.
For my second page, I switched up the colors. I covered the page with a variety of leaves. I ended up with a nice little playful pattern.
Wow, the fuschia really added a nice punch of color. Nothing shy or boring about that color.
These dual tip markers are really nice to work with. They have a fine tip on one end and a larger brush pen on the other. I do need to practice more to learn how to control the brush pen though.
I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of what you love. Art is for everyone and I hope you play and fun in your sketchbook too.
