There is only so much I can get done when working a full time job and being a mother, so I have to do what I can when I can. This is the first page of my sketchbook. It's a bit rushed but at least I made the attempt. I would usually do a photo but since the camera on my phone is not that great...uh...I opted to do a short video.

The sketchbook I'm using is the Strathmore Tan Toned Sketchbook. I love the light and textured brown of the paper. It's a nice change from the usual white paper. I don't know what it is about white paper, but it's such a blank canvas and I completely lose focus. like 85% of the time I'm dumbfounded seriously. Smh. The pencils used are Col-erase and a few random Prismacolor pencils that I forgot I had. Coo-erase pencils are such great tools. You can sketch with them just like any other pencils and erase and you can also color with them. A lot of artists use them for the outline sketch of their art, then draw over it with final lines. I like my art to be sketchy so...I dont't benefit at all from doing clean lines....they scare me.
