Day Seventeen

Dreaming of Gecko’s! Packing for my trip to Kauai has me day dreaming about Gecko’s. I love these little guys. This one isn’t really well proportioned, but he was fun to draw. Day 17 done, onto some grounds to get me going for the next few days. #30paintingsin30days!

Sketchbook Skool ‪#‎sbsexpressing‬ is in session, good Klass on lettering this week. I don’t add a lot of lettering to my journal pages. I have never really liked my own handwriting, and even with a graphic design background I was never really into drawing type. But, this was a nice push into trying something new, I think I will consider adding more lettering in the future.

I have been painting on the Big Island of Hawaii. A great place for inspiration. I am going to do a series of the Gecko’s, they are so awesome! Such wonderful personalities and so colorful. Great painting subjects. Here is my first one.
