I bought a very small Moleskine sketchbook...one that I can carry around with me all the time. I did my first drawing in it today. This book is 5.6" x 3.6" and I'm used to sketchbooks from 5" x 7" up to 9" x 12". It is definitely going to take getting used to drawing that small. I have a set of cups that I bought years ago because they had red flowers on them...but they are small and don't hold as much coffee as a mug...so they sit on a shelf just looking pretty. I choose to draw one of them to christen my new sketchbook. I used pencil, then a very fine Micron pen to go over the drawing...then used watercolor pencils to add a bit of color.
I am an artist who enjoys drawing; painting; creating silver, enameled and beaded jewelry; photography; and digital art. I also enjoy playing a dulcimer.
In 2007, I discovered the mountain dulcimer and I've spent the last couple of years learning to play this instrument.
