Friday Sketches - Week 23

"Rainbow Butterfly"
Faber-Castell Albrecht Durer Watercolor Pencil in a Stillman & Birn "Epsilon" Series Sketchbook

 Welcome to Friday Sketches.  This week has been quite the week, it's the last full week of summer vacation before the children go back to school, plus it's the lead up to Thomas' 5th birthday this weekend. (You can read a little of his story here). 

To celebrate his birthday, I'm taking $10 off all my online classes for the entire month of August (not including Splash & Scribble which is part of 21 Secrets).

To browse my class offerings, please click here.

I've also been burning the midnight oil in preparation for my my "Watercolor Pencils" class that goes live next month, so unfortunately blogging continues to take a back seat.

I thought I'd share this sketch I did as part of this class.  It is one of the exercises that focuses on the Watercolor Pencil Color Wheel.

I have been enjoying the wonderful sketches that have been posted by participants of last week's "Friday Sketches".  Be sure to check them out and leave them a comment to let them know you appreciate their work.

If you'd like to share what you've been creating this week in your sketchbook or art journal, click the link below, and be sure to leave a link back here in your blog post.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for stopping by. xx
