August Sketchbook Challenge

Paint Doodle
I never thought much about the social nature of sketchbooks until I stopped having sketchbook people to chat with. One by one as all of my sketch buddies scattered, I picked up the pencil less and less. I was busy. I didn't feel like drawing. And I wasn't being challenged or inspired. But, I'd like to change that.

I'm taking part in The Sketchbook Challenge, a challenge created by artists to encourage other artists to keep doodling away. Each month they give a prompt and everyone sketches and posts their work on flickr.

For the challenges, it seems that a lot of people submit finished pieces. They are very beautiful, but as I am just trying to get back in the habit of sketching, I'll just be posting my sketchbook doodles. The theme this month is "Journeys." I decided to paint a scene from my last big journey.

I'm looking forward to finally drawing on a regular basis again. If you are an artist, I highly encourage you to check out the Sketchbook Challenge site and post your progress.


  1. Very nice. Will you be posting the sketches on here in the future as well? I would like to see them. :)

  2. Thanks. I'll keep posting here too. That really means a lot to me.

  3. I will, thanks, Steph. You are very accomplished. :) I mean that.

    1. Thanks so much Jodi! I hope to one day to be 1/2 as accomplished as you. I am in awe of every painting I've ever seen of yours.


Tell me what you think!
