A Weekend of Drawing and Painting

This past weekend I decided to dedicate my Saturday to drawing and painting and less errrands. We did our usual grocery shopping trip, but just decided to lay low for the remainder of the weekend. 

I have enjoyed over the years drawing in sketchbooks, in old books, and shipping tags. I like the small format. These are drawn with a Sharpie Ultra Fine Point and no pencil first to challenge myself. I use Prang watercolor sets and they come with a pretty good brush. 

Prang has saturated colors their pans which I like for the tags. You don’t have to layer up the colors too much.

I can be as simple or complicated as I want in my drawings. I love to draw houses!

Some subjects are in my imagination. The middle one from Christmas 

Let’s throw caution to the wind and use a regular Sharpie. I love the boldness of the line

A weekend of drawing and painting! I hope I have inspired you to start drawing!
