I’ve done all of Liz Steel’s Sketching Now courses, some of them multiple times. But I get the most out of them when I do the group run-throughs. Liz is so generous with her time, and provides new content, examples, and reviews with each weekly Livestream. Her latest Watercolour group run-through started yesterday, and in its honour I assembled a new, reduced palette for working on the exercises.

In Liz Steel’s Sketchbook Design class, she shows how, even if you don’t particularly like your first sketch, you can rescue the spread by adding another one, and/or other design elements. I’m not going to win any awards with this spread, but it’s somewhat improved from where it was an hour earlier.
