What’s In My Sketchbook

I’m terrible at finishing sketchbooks. I usually give up on a sketchbook half way through and buy another one. So the fact that not only did I finish a sketchbook but did it in under 4 months is kind of unbelievable. So here are some of my favourite pages.

HAND LETTERING

Some advice from my doctor just after being diagnosed with CFS. I did another version of this which became sort of popular on Tumblr.

I Have Loved The Stars: I had seen something like this on Etsy and really wanted to buy it, but the artist had attributed the quote to Galileo. It’s actually from The Old Astronomer by Sarah Williams.

Jasper: This is my other black labrador, it was my first time doing a dog portrait and I was really pleased with how it turned out. Mainly because my family could tell who it was supposed to be.

LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS

For a while I was really into watching videos of people painting in watercolour. But I can’t watch a 30 minute video without getting bored so I started painting along with the video. It turned out to be a really good way of learning watercolour.

DESIGN

Books: This is the original version of the My Favourite Things painting.

Patterns: I really like this pattern, I want to turn it into a phone cover or something. This also inspired my DIY Paint Patterns post.

Thanks for reading πŸ™‚
