I figured out why I have had such a hard time using a sketch book. I was going about it the wrong way because I thought I needed to be drawing in it. I don't really like to draw with pencil or pen, it's just not enjoyable for me. I just love the flow and color of paint and the blending of brushstrokes more than anything else. I don't know why it took me so long to realize that I could use my sketch book for watercolors. I LOVE IT! Now, when I don't have enough time to take up the whole table, I can just get out my watercolors and let the art out.
It just goes to show that I'm learning something new about my creativity and art making everyday. I'm really enjoying this new learning experience. I can't wait to see where it takes me next.
