I experienced another "first" in this week's set of drawings. I was so unhappy with one sketch, that I completely covered it with something else. I started with a partial monarch wing in colored pencil, but the markings were off, and I couldn't adjust it enough to be pleased with it. So I broke out the black paint and covered it up. I still wanted to add something to the book that made me happy, so I painted a watercolor leaf and glued it in. Problem solved, haha!
Because this project has gained so much traction, I've decided to start up a separate little group for us all to stay inspired and encourage each other to keep creating. Right now, you can follow along on instagram at @FillYourSketchbook. I've also set up a site at www.fillyoursketchbook.com, where you can join the mailing list if you'd like!
I hope you enjoy the following pages.
