Sketchbook Skool #3

Pen & Ink, Watercolor

This lesson was taught by Brenda Swenson. She’s a wonderful watercolorist and a well-known teacher. She does workshops to Italy!! I want to go to there. Her lesson included continual line drawings. Do not lift your pen! Watch the subject and draw what you see.

So, my first go round, I learned that paying attention is quite necessary here.

Next try was a bit better.

I was getting bored with tea things, and then I remembered how happy it makes me to draw tools. They’re out of sight, being in the garage. I forget about them…

If you are ever at a loss for something interesting to draw, go sit on the floor of your garage. If there is space for your butt, you will find something draw-worthy. If not, I bet that big ass mess would be more fun to draw than pick up.
