On going art journey

I have signed up for Alisa Burke's Sketchbook Delight Online class - the actual class ended some time ago, but that is the beauty of virtual learning, it is still there for me to access.

I am still working my way through Lesson 1, which is really just testing out all the media. This exercise has been very good for me - it helps be learn what I like, what works and what doesn't.  As someone with NO formal art training since grade school, this is very important.

So - here is my sketchbook so far.

Testing media is so fun! :) Seems like you are enjoying it. I like the little shell you drew too.

I really am enjoying this, I'm learning so much. The shell is Alisa's but I have one that looks very much like it on my desk. She uses it in her techniques vids and I just started copying it. I have more tests to do, so you will see more of the shell.

I like that shell, too. The first pic of pencil tests looks really cool. I'm really enjoying your art journey!
