I signed up for the Sketchbook Challenge in order to try to learn how to draw designs better. I used to Tole paint but I’ve never been able to draw so I think it’s time I make an attempt.
For January, the subject is “doodling”. I took a look at some of the things other people in the challenge have done to see just what “doodling” means. 🙂 After taking a look, I decided to use a lamp in the den as the beginning of my Doodle. It’s a bit wonky but it gave me something to start with.
From there, I drew some sections and filled them with quilting motifs. My Sketchbook efforts will mostly be with quilty designs. I first sketched it out in pencil so I could erase & re-sketch if needed and then I used a roller-ball pen to emphasize the sketch. I kind of like it but I can see lots of room for improvement and I surely hope I get better at this. And if you’re a real sketchbook artist, I’ll gladly take constructive criticism.
You can tell me what you think but please be gentle. Remember, I’m a “budding” artist. 😉
