Sketchbooking

One of the things I'm trying to get organised over the next couple of weeks is to get more into a habit of sketching and keeping sketchbooks. Reading quite a few different blogs, I've come across some intriguing ideas for organising the sketchbook:

- studying a colour for some time before moving on to the next one, as mentioned in the Laurelines blog or
- a sketchbook on a subject (e.g. trees, such as in Vivien Blackburn's one)

I've been using a Moleskine sketchbook for travelling - while the sizing of the paper took some getting used with watercolour washes - which I use mainly just for colour reference, I now started to quite like the effects of it, and went and bought a couple more to organise thematically.

Super - das ging ja schnell!!
Wie war Dein Geburtstag? Ich war so im Streß am WoE, dass ich nicht geschaftt habe anzurufen. Kam mein Päckchen rechtzeitig an?
Bis bal per fon...
