Sketchbook Start

Broke open my new Midori Diary Sketchbook w/Storyboard sections on each page. Jumped right in with watercolor experiments from my friend Lori’s Art Cart of Awesome!

1. Kuretake Watercolor Pens:

2. Caran d’Arche – Watercolor Crayons

3. Watercolor Pencils

From page 1 I have had trouble staying within the lines :)

Using my Koh-I-Noor Progresso colored pencils next, I’m laying down preferred color schemes for pieces rough drafted in crocheted cotton and are being crocheted in colored copper wire for the final larger scale artwork:
