Sketchbook Skool "Imagination" Homework for Ohn Mar Win

Helping My Imagination to Overcome Resistance:  Several summers ago I decided to spend 100 days drawing from my imagination,  I filled 100 pages - and had fun doing it.  I used pen for all drawings and smooth copy paper bound in a book - low tech, and low stakes.  My inner critic ignored me

In order to continue periodic drawing from my imagination I bought these inexpensive sketchbooks, and use them to play.  I really have a different mindset when I draw in pen on these pages - and that makes me happy.

Drawing a Collection From My Imagination:  Our first homework assignment from Ohn Mar was to either cover a page with a repeated design, or draw a collection.  I chose the latter, and just made up shapes for glasses and bottles.  When I decided to paint it, I transferred the drawing to watercolor paper using tracing paper and graphite, and then painted it.

Imagination and Play:  Our second homework assignment was to play with watercolor - wet in wet - without having anything special in mind.  Ohn Mar then added random white pen marks to her watercolor.  I want to use my watercolor painting to make more magnetic bookmarks, so I didn't add pen.

These are recent magnetic bookmarks I'm using that I made from watercolor paintings. 

Here is a link to a previous blog post describing how to make them:
