Sketchbook Project "Down My Street" – Last Part

art project, book, ink, library, sketch, sketchbook project









The Sketchbook is complete and went to NY Art House. It was fun project that required good preparation, the ability to stick to one thing; and, finish meeting a deadline. Watercolor and ink is not what I usually do. Neither the sketch-like paintings. Therefore, I was challenging myself by braking the comfort zone. At the end it was very helpful to me as I taught myself to loosen up and fight my perfectionist nature by painting fast and almost “careless”. It was also fun to use ink with watercolors. I think it gives cheerful cartoon-ish look to the sketches. Each sketch took not more than 15-20 minutes. 38 pieces completed. Love the outcome!!…………………………………4″x5.5″ Watercolor on Paper, 90lb Cold Press
