I’ve been playing in my little sketchbook (as opposed to my large sketchbook which is for soft sculpture ideas). It is a pocketsize book I bought a few months ago.
I’m working at my watercolor and pen sketches. I have no confidence in my sketching skills so it’s very good practice for me to do this. I make it more tempting for myself by having nice supplies, like a nice set of travel watercolors and a lovely moleskin notebook. Oh, and my dollar store electric eraser – so cool.
I’ve been sketching beetles (badly), still life (badly) and imaginary feathers. I’m happy with the feathers. I love the idea of making giant feathers, as though they’ve been dropped by a giant bird that flew by. I’m still noodling about how I’m going to make them happen.
In the meantime, here are a couple of pages from my book.

Those are gorgeous. You don’t give yourself enough credit.
