Sunday sketchbook

I thought it would be fun to take you on a walk through my sketchbook today.

Happy Sunday! 💚

My sketchbook is filled with a lot of quick sketches. As you will see, I don’t spend much time on detail or shading. Below are a few of my recent favorites.

I like to play with shapes and work on different ideas.

My sketchbook is all about playing and having fun.

simple sketchbook flowers

I do most of my sketching with a pen and that means no erasing. 😊

I think sketching that way builds muscle memory and confidence.

Sometimes a little floral sketch will inspire a painting.

undersea ink sketching

I like to use a variety of micron pens in different sizes and colors. A colorful sketch like this one makes me smile. It’s fun to play with color and try out different combinations.

I love to doodle and sketch underwater life. My hope is that these little sketches will lead to more ideas and bigger projects.

I hope you enjoyed this quick stroll through my sketchbook. Until next time, keep playing and having fun.

Undersea painting – watercolor and ink

I thought it would be fun to work on an underwater scene. I’m fascinated with sea life and really love visiting Aquariums.

Happy Sunday, friends! 💙

undersea watercolor beginnings

I painted some circles and fun shapes first. Then once it was dry, I started sketching on top.

Sketchbook playtime

In my sketchbook I practiced a bit and played with different pens and colors. It doesn’t look like much but it really helps build confidence before adding all of the ink detail on the final piece.

This is a close up of the finished piece. I really like this color palette of blue, green, and gold. I layered different shapes and used a variety of pens and markers from my stash.

It’s so much fun to just let go and see what happens.
