I’ve decided to do a 30-day sketchbook challenge. The challenge is to do something in my sketchbook each day. Today I drew a Christmasy dog. My intent is to paint it with acrylic paints. I’m using a mixed media sketchpad. You can also use a watercolor pad. Both of those have thick pages so the paint won’t bleed through.
I painted my first picture last October. This is all still new to me. I’m just now learning to sketch and paint. If something turns out well, I’m pretty sure I just got lucky. My hope is to get much better at it by the end of 2022. I want to record my progress to see if I learn anything.
Here are a few nice sketchbooks that I believe will work fine with acrylic paint.
