The Art of a Sketchbook - Friday
Some times I get very brave and sketch something with a pen only. Each item picked to be the only item (s) on the page of my sketchbook. If it doesn't turn out I can always cover it with another piece of paper.
Laundry basket with a touch of watercolor added for a shadow.

Fallen leaves from imagination. Drawn bravely, then some watercolor for a shadow and colors to emphasize the time of year.
A tape dispenser sitting on my desk.

Pears .... from a magazine. Kind of experimenting by not outlining each pear.
Be brave and try something you haven't tried before. Your sketchbook is a great place to experiment.
