Dion Dior here, the February theme of Windows is definitely a good one for sketchbook inspiration.
People keep sketchbooks for some many purposes, but there are always times when it is difficult to find inspiration.
It's winter in the Northern Hemisphere right now and that makes it sometimes very hard and uninspiring.
If you live in a snow covered area, you'll understand what I mean. But it is at this time of year that we can exercise our sketchbook imagination in so many ways.
I love to sketch windows and then show a scene of some kind through it. Sometimes I sketch what I see, other times I sketch what I wish I was seeing. It's a wonderful way to practice your drawing skills and also to explore new media and techniques.
I have sketchbook pages filled with window scenes. I often scour the internet for a picture of a great window aspect, then I find something that I think would be great to look out on. I sometimes find myself filling the walls of my scene with inspirational quotes, personal writing, or just mindless journaling. It's very enlightening and hugely enjoyable.
This sketchbook page was done in water soluble ink and watercolor in a Stillman & Birn "Epsilon" series sketchbook.
What are you looking at through your window?
Don't forget to post images of your "Window" sketchbook pages in the Flickr group and tag it with this months tag Feb257 so it can be included in the end of month slide show.
Thanks for checking in. xx
