Sketchbook page 6

Page 6

Okay, this is one of my favorite pages of the whole book...a brick wall with a tunnel to anywhere, there are trees on the other side and a world of wonder awaiting. I think it is my favorite because I was inspired from within. I usually get my ideas from looking at other pictures, books, artwork, and such. This time I sat and thought about what I thought would be a cool path. As a child my sisters and I lived near this big wooded area in Vermont. We had a stream that was in these woods behind our house. When it got really hot we would make our way to this stream where it came out from the mountain, under the highway, into a collecting pool which was deep enough to submerge our young, small bodies. It was a cool place and this tunnel reminds me of it. Yet, once we got cooled off we had to make our way back to the house and by the time we got back, we were hot again! We still thought it was great!

Sketchbook page 5

Page 5

This is sketchbook page 6, what do you think? It is a magical doorway in the woods! I have much more work to do on this page, but it is going to be awesome, I think. I love to draw! You can do anything, go anywhere...I haven't yet but I plan to cut this door open to get to the next page. We will see how it goes...

Sketchbook page 4

Page 4

Here is my sketchbook page number 4. I went down low to the ground and drew some flowers. A person would see flowers walking in the woods wouldn't they? I'm not quite finished with this page, because I have another idea of something I want to add to it. When I get that done I will post it again. And yes, I added some color to this page just to see if I liked it. I have a page towards the end of the book that is totally in color and I like it! Hope fully you may like it too.

Sketchbook page 3

Page 3

Here is page 3 of my sketchbook. As I imagine myself walking through a path in the woods, I come across an area where there are balloons flying through the air. They are high above the trees, floating in the clouds. I love hot air balloons so of course they would show up in my imaginary "path through the woods." I hope you like this page. Again, thanks for looking!

Sketchbook page 2

Page 2
This is my sketchbook again, page 2. I had this idea of a floating castle so I drew one, yeah, I don't really know what to say about this page. I was going to make the trail eventually connect somehow to this castle. I haven't finished all the pages yet so I can still do this, I think. It really takes a lot of energy and imagination to come up with original ideas, that is probably why it is so important that others do not steal your work. I'm sure there are others who have all their ideas floating around in their heads. I have some ideas but they always get shoved out of the way by everyday worries and work, or household chores.  I hope you like what I have done on this page. I would love to hear-"read"- what you think. Thanks for looking!
