Note: 1 of the 8×10 books was my working sketchbook for upcoming SketchingNow Watercolour course and I have not shared anything from this book! I also have two books that I filled up while teaching sketching classes, but I didn’t include this in this photo.
A few comments about this years sketching:
I did a lot of travel – 11 weeks! – and as usual these were by far my most productive sketching periods espeically when I am hanging out with fellow Urban Sketchers. I feel so priviledged to be able to do this!
On the drawing side of things, I am doing quick ink sketches with my Lamy pen (the nib is somewhere between a fine and a medium) and don’t seem to be using my Sailor pen much (though I still love it). I am having a lot of fun doing these extremely rapid sketches.
So all up, it was a pretty amazing year for my sketching.
I hope you had some great developments with your art too in 2017.
