Playing with spectrums

 
I make endless notes and am really making an effort to sketch more. I really miss drawing and painting. Blogging, crafting, presenting, learning html etc. kind of took over. It is really nice to re-visit old hobbies and spend sometime developing old creative avenues, seeing how they have changed. I decided to decorate these sketchbooks in preparation for my return to drawing.
 
Take your plain sketchbook and 2 tubes of paint. You will need the colour of your choice and white. Mix different shades of the paint colour, remember it is better to add the colour to the white and build up rather than trying to lighten a dark colour.
 
 
I think they look really effective together as a set and am feeling inspire to get drawing again. Is there something that you used to do that you would like to re-visit? A hobby that you miss?
