Why keep an art sketchbook?
Whether you’re feeling inspired to draw, draw, draw… or have been told to start a sketchbook habit, here we take a look at some reasons why you might keep a sketchbook and think about what format that sketchbook might take…
Your sketchbook is there to serve you so use it in the way that’s most useful for you personally!
How do you feel about the idea of keeping a sketchbook?
Is it something you’re keen to get started doing? Or do you feel you ‘should’ keep an art sketchbook?

Yep! Me too!
Basic colour wheel colour theory explained – keeping it simple – put the ideas into practice straight away.
Do people keep referring to the colour wheel or colour theory without explaining what it is, why it’s helpful, or what it’s got to do with you? …confusing, right?
Only until it’s explained properly! When you understand basic colour wheel ideas, it’s like you’ve been let into a special artists’ club and get to find out all the colour secrets!

That’s what I want to share with you – how basic colour wheel colour theory can improve your art!
We’ll look together at the basic colour wheel – we’ll understand what it’s for and understand some simple colour terms before going on to see how basic colour wheel colour theory can help us choose colours for our drawings and artworks.
