Easy Sketchbook Idea

This is an easy sketchbook idea! Take a pencil and trace it and color it in with watercolor paint, watercolor pencils or colored pencils. Be sure and look close at your pencil as it will cast a shadow on the surface it is laying on and you'll want to be sure and capture that. This is a great way to practice your drawing and painting skills and a great way to fill your sketchbook!

The supplies I used was the Strathmore Visual Watercolor Sketchbook, Holbein Watercolor paints and a round #8 and round #4 watercolor brush. You can find many good watercolor supplies on Jackson's website! I have been ordering from them and the prices are good and the shipping is quick! If you order through my links on this blog I will get points to use on supplies. #jacksons_art #strathmore #holbeinartistmaterials #sketchbook #watercolor
