It's hard to believe that school has started where I live. That usually signals the end of summer but I have to remind myself that it isn't over yet. I still want to savor summer. I am enjoying this slower pace. I want to capture it and hold onto it. I have an idea! I invite you to join me in keeping a Summer Sketchbook.
- Take out a blank sketchbook and spend the rest of August and fill it up with images of summer. Sketch, take photos, make a collage. Use any media you wish...mix it up! Take time each day to find something that represents summer to you and capture it in your sketchbook.
- If you haven't had a chance to travel this summer...become a tourist in your own town. See it with fresh eyes. Sketch it...experience it....savor it.
I will share my sketchbook in progress with you later this week. If you have a blog, share your sketches on your blog or join my Facebook group....The Pastel Challenge Group and share your sketches with the group!
About today's painting: This is on Uart paper with a watercolor underpainting. If you look carefully you can see a lot of the watercolor showing under the pastel.
