LOVELY! The photo images have translated just beautifully to your sketchbook and the words are an artful touch. The colors are perfect for a cold, wintery day :o)

How beautiful. I'm beginning to think green is my color because I am so jealous of your talent.

Elisa said...

Hi Alisa, I've just spent the past 30 minutes looking over your archives. My favorites are the sketches. I have always liked sketching, but am not very good at it because I never practice. You have inspired me to sketch daily. I'm going to try it. It's too easy for me, I can do it right along with my 5 and 2 year old while we homeschool. Just wanted to thank you for your sketching 101 post! That's exactly what I was looking for.

sue bulmer said...

Beautiful sketchbook pages. Would you like to be featured on my blog. I do a weekly feature called Sketchbook Peeks, delving into the creative processes of artists and designers and how they record their ideas and use their sketchbooks in their creative work. If you would like to have a look there are some interviews on the blog. I've been running it since earlier this year and it's proving to be really popular. Would love to include your work. email me via my website if you are interested and I'll email you the interview questions.
Thanks
Sue
