Hey there friends! This is Charlie O’Shields and welcome back to another episode of Sketching Stuff! I always talk about letting my inner child come out to play, and the fact is, that’s not just sometimes, but literally all of the time for me. In my heart, I’m never sitting down to make a piece of art, but simply coloring in my coloring book each day. And, as many of you know, my favorite thing in the world to color with is watercolor!
After releasing a book of illustrated stories last year, I’ve gotten requests for a book that talks about how I sketch stuff. I wasn’t sure what to create. I don’t have much of a technique, really, and I’m not an art teacher. I just like to play and jump in and DO things each day. That’s when the idea hit me! I’ll make an Activity Book like I had when I was a kid. Where you can jump in and Scribble, Doodle, Color with me! For people of all ages and skill levels. So, I did that and the first Sketching Stuff Activity Book is now available on Amazon.com (click here to check it out!). So, in honor of my new fun book, here’s a fun collection of stories inspired by coloring with watercolor!!
