2018 Sketchbook Practice #5

Who loves Sketchbooks?! I DO I DO!

I am back for another week of my sketchbook practice, series 2 for 2018! Today we are using analogous colors, drawing from life and looking to see what happens when we add white and tint our colors!! This exercise is a great way to loosen up explore the colors you have laying around your creative space and practice drawing from life as well! Grab your paints and lets get going!

Quick Terminology Refresher:

Analogous colors are groups of three colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, sharing a common color, with one being the dominant color, which tends to be a primary or secondary color, and a tertiary. Red, orange, and red-orange are examples.


Your Sketchbook: Mine is a Global Art Hand Book Watercolor Journal (landscape)

A Pencil for sketching 3 Acrylic paints: Primary Blue, blue/green color (like Phalo Blue) & Green - feel free to use whatever you have on hand as well and just experiment.

A paintbrush or two flat & round

Check out the video below to see my process for mixing colors and using analogous colors to sketch, paint and experiment in your sketchbook!

I hope you enjoyed this quick sketchbook exercise and I hope you are able to find some time to explore! It is never a to late to start creating and exploring your creative process.
