Make a Pocket Sketchbook for your Travels

 Many of my artist friends are taking a little extra free time this summer to make a few road trips. Along with your usual snapshots wouldn’t it be nice to have a pocket sketchbook with you and spend an hour under the shade of a roadside tree sketching the colors of summer?

Take a few of these in your day bag while traveling.
Choose your favorite watercolor paper for your DIY pocket sketchbook.

It’s fun to choose decorative papers to create a theme for each little pocket sketchbook.

At the end I share a flip through of my sketches from Roosengarde in my own DIY pocket sketchbook.

Here’s my YouTube tutorial on how to make one for yourself or as a gift for a friend. 

Tomorrow I’m leading an online on location watercolor workshop at another stunning garden. Join us!
