Adventures in Art Journaling – Black and White Tree Sketch

Hi Everyone!

I was cleaning out the craft stuff (It’s that time of year again already!) and found myself going through some of my older sketches and journals. I found this picture I drew in college (about 16 years ago, yikes!). I went through a phase of sketching trees, no color just black and white. I can’t explain it but there is something very therapeutic about seeing an object then sketching it out.  Maybe because it takes so much focus…and the focus is on something beautiful and natural.  Anyways, I had about 3 hours between classes and one day I just sat outside and drew for the whole three hours.  It was awesome and one of my clearest memories. So I thought I would share it….

Playing with Water Color

Hi Everybody!

I have had a bug to watercolor lately. My mom bought me a cool pack at the dollar store. I loved the colors, they were florescent! Also, instead of having the typical shinny finish they were matte, which is really neat. 

This was one of my first experiments 

I drew the image first with pencil, then water color then outlined in black marker

Have a wonderful Day!!
