A Day of Thumbnail Sketches in Ink and Watercolor
Today was a busy day and I knew I wouldn't have time for a full-fledged painting, so I began the day by making a two-page grid of boxes in my sketchbook. That way, I could do small thumbnail sketches as I went about my day.
I used a Uniball Vision Micro pen to do all the drawing. For some of them, I used the little Koi watercolor box that's in the sketch, with a water barrel brush; for others, I used the palette below with an Escoda #6 travel brush (the gold cylinder in the photo). I loved doing this "grid" approach to quick sketches. It made them feel managable on a day when I otherwise would not have done any artwork at all. It looks pretty cool in the sketchbook too!
