Tips on How To Fill Up a Landscape Sketchbook

1. Landscape & Cityscape

Traditional landscapes can be kind of boring (for me at least), but taking a fun approach can inject your sketchbook with some unexpected joy. I played around with the Dallas cityscape in this landscape sketchbook.

2. Lettering

The landscape sketchbook format actually lends itself really well to doing fun lettering pieces. You can experiment with different pens or watercolors. I loved playing with my brusho powders for some of the lettering pieces you’ll see in the sketchbook tour.

3. Repetitive pattern

This type of format is also really fun to do a repetitive pattern. Actually all of the fun rainbow pattern snacks from my latest Skillshare Class were done in one of these landscape sketchbooks. It’s really fun and great practice to do the same item in different rainbow colors.

4. Various experiments

Ultimately, a sketchbook is a place for experimentation. Trying out a fun and expected format like this one can help spark some new unexpected and creative ideas. Having a certain restriction to size or materials always proves to help us in our creative journey.

Let me know if you end up giving this sketchbook a try!

Stay Creative,
