Sketching on Location during School Field trip…How you can too.

Part of my life as an artist is my family,my kids,their school. I began driving bus a couple years ago. It allows me to be involved with their activities and just as important,has created a routine to paint and work.

BONUS: Opprotunities to work out on location too. 

None of my own children were on this one so it provided me with a few hours to. Hangout with the high school kids and sketch.

Simple supplies of a machanic pencil ( no sharpener required)., Waterproof pen. Sakura Pigma .03 my choice,a water rush and a travel pill case with a few colors.For now, I’ve settled on Transparent Yellow, Quinacridone Red, Phthalo blue, with Payne’s Gray and VanDyke Brown.

Oh,and a small white vynal eraser.😉

My favorite sketchbook of Hand Journal.

Susan Walker creates bright, bold, encouraging mixed media acrylic paintings. Custom paintings and pet portraits. Conducts,drawing, Twisted line,travel sketching for mixed media paint & sip classes for adults and children as well as many others at her location or yours.She works in her home studio while sharing it with family and fellow creatures: Lucy the beagle, Pickles the once independent city slicker, 6 koi, 3 uninvited but welcomed frogs in their pond. Here you can follow along in her life as an artist & business owner in her daily life as a mother,wife. Mixed media is her medium of choose,building up layers of paint, texture, stamping and just about anything else lending to the topic. She enjoys the whispers of encouraging words in her art. Inspiring words can be the focus or whispers among the images she draws and paints. She feels the world around us is filled with criticism and pressure where our own thoughts and being gets forgotten. Sometimes she states encouragement and inspiration boldly as the focus of the piece or just under the surface and among the layers for the discerning eye to discover. Susan continues to work with pen/ink and watercolor using them in her art and in her almost daily sketchbook journals. Can see more of my work : FAN PAGE:
