In this video I share my May 2019 sketchbook. Mostly black, pen and ink drawings of owls, figure drawings, faces, and flowers.
This is a Moleskine brand sketchbook. I’m not sure when I got it, but it was great for pen and ink style drawings.
In this video I decided to draw an elephant. Keeping things mellow by starting the drawing slowly with a bic pen.
After looking at the initial drawing I thought it needed more energy. So I added a black watercolor wash to the shadow areas. Then I went over some of the lines with a more inky pen.
I hope you enjoy this speed drawing video.
In this video I take you on a tour of my April 2019 sketchbook. This is one of the sketchbooks I took on my 3 month trip throughout SouthEast Asia.
You’ll see pages of my sketchbook where I drew with everything from pen and ink to watercolor.
I believe a sketchbook is a place where you can draw without worrying about perfection. A place to capture your ideas and the things you see in a creative way… and with whatever medium you want.
A few times a week Nalena and I go to a coffee shop to draw. We both work at home so it’s nice to get out. On this day we decided to ride my moto to James Coffee Co in downtown San Diego.
Sometimes it can feel strange drawing in public. You feel like people are always looking over your shoulder (sometimes they do). But it’s good practice to help you feel less afraid of sharing your work. Many times over the course of an hour people would walk up and ask to see our drawings. It was so much fun.
I hope you enjoy the video.
