Sketchbook Tuesday

Looks like posting works from my sketchbook is turning into a regular Tuesday thing. And that's okay. Maybe it will inspire me to work in my sketchbooks more regularly, knowing that there is always another Tuesday right around the corner. Pears are becoming a regular subject for me too. I just love their shapes and the subtle gradations of color. I did this page spread while the Professor and Kiddo were out Trick-or-Treating last Saturday evening. It's all done with watercolor pencils in my hand.book journal.

I agree with you completely Ann! Pears have such beautiful colors in them, and you illustrated that perfectly! Tuesday or any day is a fine day to post I am sure. I wish I could be a little bit more consistent, but I am working on something maybe 6-7 times the size I usually am working on. And this would be a gift to my German co-workers, a huge thank you note ^^ of course it won't just be "Danke!!" on the paper :)

I agree with you about pears. They are quite sculptural and colorful. Lovely painting of them.
