Lab 46: Get a Stack of Books

I am working from the book Drawing Lab by Carla Sonheim and it is terrific...even if I don't follow it to the 'T' I'm getting so much out of it. In this exercise, you're supposed to use a stack of books but I took my 'Eyewitness France' book off my shelf first and just stuck with it! And I spent a nice 2 hours in France :)

I received a nice set of Inktense watercolor pencils. That is what I used for this exercise, along with my trusty Microns. But I do want to try out the Dr.Ph Martin's watercolors I also received . I haven't even broken them out of the plastic yet. I am surprised at my patience. Maybe its intimidation, LOL!

I got so much out of the responses from my last post! Thanks to everyone who replied with their amazing comments. I am so encouraged! I am definately not going to worry anymore about a style and just do my thing.

Have a good evening everyone. Enjoy the rest of this Monday and have a lovely week!

This is wonderful Fran!! I'd happily spend a few hours in France too!

I just bought the book as well and am hoping to fit a few exercises now that I've finally finished Faces 101 and before I begin Silly 5. Can you tell I LOVE Carla!
