when i saw that alisa burke was offering a new online class called sketchbook delight, i signed up.....real-quick-super-fast-why-is-paypal-moving-so-slowly-kind-of-signing-up! it's not so much a class filled with particular mixed media techniques, it's more a class filled with examples and permissions for honing a particular skill......drawing.
alisa is teaching us how to look at things around us with an artist's eye.......looking at things in our world, things that inspire us. for example, i have always loved this wire basket with that chunky wood handle.....
so i interpreted part of it in my new sketch journal. it doesn't look anything like the basket (actually, i can't figure out what it really looks like!).....but it sure was fun taking a simple object and creating something simple with it, using really simple supplies:
pencil, watercolor, micron pens, and a bit of imagination!
