One of my favorite things to do is sketch everyday objects. I see it as a way to document a moment in life where too many (if any) words are unnecessary.
My page, followed by some closeups.
The process: sketch with pencil (I used 98lb. bristol paper and a plain old #2 pencil) lightly, then draw over the pencil lines with a thin permanent pen (I used a Micron, tip size 01). Erase the pencil lines, then paint. If you've never done this before and want to try, do watch Jane's video. I have a travel sized Sakura watercolor kit, but you can use any brand you have. According to Jane, even a child's set will work just fine.
This is where I have found my inspiration today. What is inspiring you right now?
