While in Los Angeles I spend a little bit of time each evening in my hotel room working on a few sketchbook pages inspired by my train ride. Here is a peek-

Love it.....this is the one thing I keep yearning to do (journaling) and somehow I have been avoiding. weird....

Joanne said...

WOW, WOW, WOW....your sketchbook is a gorgeous piece of art. I so enjoy the peeks and am just envious as hell I can't draw like that!

Hola Alisa,
Been following your blog for many weeks and you still amaze me every time you post something new. I'm million miles away from being creative but I do admire your works (a special master piece each and every one of them) You even inspire me to start doing things (besides crochet which I started a couple of years ago), maybe one day I'll dare to...Thanks for sharing your art in blogland.
Greetings from Spain
Ana

I get so excited when I see that you are giving us a peak inside your sketchbook! you are such a fabulous artist, and I love to see your paints! Makes me want to dust off my old studio and start painting instead of sewing again...

Thank you for sharing something so personal with us!

I love your sketches - I'd love to know if you did these from memory of your train ride or if you took snapshots for inspiration to work from? I find I have a difficult time sketching totally from memory and wondered how other artists work.

Erin Butson said...

I always love looking in your sketch book! your color & style. gorgeous, as always.

LindaSonia said...

If there's one talent I really admire in others, it is people who can paint or draw. I'm sooo envious of those who can do it effortlessly - all the shading, the nuances. Love it and I love the glimpses into your sketchbook. :)

Suzanne said...

I wish I could plaster pages from your sketchbook all over my walls. I love everything about your beautiful drawings!

Like I am hanging out for Monday not enough, you post this? How am I meant to make it through the weekend???

For those above saying they wish this or that - don't wish, DO IT! Alisa's sketchbook class starts Monday, is priced very reasonably and the eyecandy alone will be worth it. SEIZE THE DAY!

Alisa, I received the class invite and then it became inactive. I don't know how to enter the class without it. The intro video worked but the next one didn't. I am very new at doing anything in google and flicker. Can you please send instructions to (amipilon@aol.com)thankyou, Ami

I love your train windows. What is the white pen you write with? I did a 365 drawing exercise last year...one each day in a series of little books. It was a lovely record and although I was relieved to finish it, I kind of miss it now.

I love how your sketches are like windows into your soul - they're framed like a window, with writing around the edges, telling the rest of the story. Really beautiful!
