The Art of a Sketchbook - Friday

Sketchbook Chronicle, graphite and watercolor, ©2013 Nancy Van Blaricom

While looking through my sketchbooks for something to share with you today I came upon this one entry that chronicles how I was feeling about losing a few pounds and gaining a few pounds ... adding different watercolors to different circled sentences. I see I only have this one entry of this type, but, looking at it now I like the way it looks.

This type of sketchbook entry isn't any help to something I wanted to paint, but, a lighter type journal entry.

This year I am going to try to focus on using a single sketchbook for one type of sketching I do.  One maybe for journal type sketching (like the above photo) and another for daily sketching, one for thumbnails, etc.  Mostly now I use one for everything until its full.


  1. I always enjoy seeing what you have to share from your sketchbooks, Nancy. Wonderful entries... and you are quite an inspiration!

  2. Sorry, Nancy, I had to laugh : "I will not stuff myself". Sounds like me and Julie in the Chinese buffet each Tuesday.

  3. Glad you understand. I've done my share of stuffing myself in the buffet. Must be universal, huh?
