Sketchbook February

Sketchbook February

Sketching, drawing, painting, and digitally enhancing have been just a few things I have been working on lately.  I really love to create and have a strong desire to try and get better and better.  So this month I have challenged myself, (while in the height of my winter hibernation up here in the north) to not only create, but to share daily on my blog what I am creating.  I realize that many days you will get to see finished products and some days I will have to share a work in progress.  But regardless I am challenging myself to share for the next 28 days without fail.  I hope you enjoy and tag along to see what I am working on.  

If you like a creation, let me know....I need all the feedback I can get.  I am truly the hardest critic of myself.  Today, to kick it off, I would like to share two things.  First I would like to show you my cover of my new February sketchbook.  
doodling, drawing

Completely hand sketched by ME!  This is just a rough doodle sketch that I created in pen, so no erasing at all.  

Next I would like to share a new type of sketch/artwork that I am beginning to get into.  And today being Super Bowl Sunday this was a creation I just couldn't resist to create for my Patriot loving son!!!  Go Pats!!!  So this one was sketched in pencil (lots of erasing), and then drawn in pen.  Then I took it digitally to enhance it.  I had fun creating a little magic with it on favorite photo editing of all time.  I am just waiting on them to develop an app for my mobile devices and then I will be all set!!!  If you haven't tried at least the free version of PicMonkey, I highly recommend it.  It's amazing what you can do on it.

UPDATE:  For all my friends that are crazy Seahawks fans (I say that lovingly!) is a version just for you guys!!!

Well that's all for today.  Be sure to check back every few days to see what I have created next.  


  1. Sketching is a great hobby because it can give you opportunity to draw you imaginations. Even by sketching we can feel relax and it has many other features too and get cheap essay writing uk from us. So I’d like to thank “Pam McFarland” for posting this encouraging and attractive post.
