So far, this sketchbook is serving two purposes for me. Each page completed is a separate piece of art. The book as a collection is a piece of art, too. But each page is also a way for me to chronicle ideas. To try different subjects and mediums and to become more comfortable with new things. These pages are becoming platforms for firsts--first self portrait, first try with gouache, first time feeling comfortable with colored pencils, and the first time sharing daily art in such a public way.
So here are my sketches this week. (In case you are curious if there were any firsts this week, this was the first time I've ever painted clouds.) Enjoy!
