Sketching, in journals and with apps


One of my favorite things to do in the evening, is sketch in my many journals. I love experimenting with pencils, pens, colored pencils, ink and water, anything… Faces are my #1 love…so sketching these quirky faces makes me so very happy.




I love trying out different papers as well…and colored pencils add some drama too!


I don’t always draw in journals…sometimes it’s on little cardboard boxes. No surface is safe with me!


I am also a huge fan of using digital tools. I have several iPads that I enjoy sketching on. The sketch above, was made on an iPad pro, and an Apple pencil, using the Pen and Ink app. It looks very much like a hand drawn sketch, don’t you think?


These were drawn, using the Art Set Pro app. They look very much like I used charcoal and white pencil on a tanned toned piece of paper. This is one of my favorite apps to use.

The SketchClub app is also good, and will record your progress. There are so many choices out there, for sketching on wonderful surfaces…and digitally.

What are your favorites???
