Recently purchased this new Stillman & Birn, Zeta Series (5.5" x 3.5") Soft Cover Sketchbook. "The paper in the Zeta Series is hearty, smooth, and perfect for rich watercolors, vibrant markers, unique fountain pens, and more!" I am going to look at this as "little book of experiments". Try something new... maybe its style, maybe it use of colour or limited use of colour, maybe its abstract, maybe it an different subject matter, happen to see an artist style that I admire, give it a try.
Page 1 - A sketch that is extra loose and use limited colours. The subject, flowers from the garden, something I normally do not do. Here we have the morning glories that climb on the fence by the garage. The sketch done very quickly, only a few minutes.
