Jewelry in the Sketchbook

FullSizeRender (1)

I’ve been drawing some of my jewelry in my sketchbook lately. The one up above is a necklace I wear all the time, at least once a week. It was fun to color because it has both opaque and translucent gemstones.

I wear the second necklace less often, but often enough to keep it in my frequently-worn box. I thought it would be interesting to color because of the purplish sheen it gives off when light hits it. Plus, this one has a gold-tone chain, so I had a chance to color both gold-tone and silver-tone.


Both were drawn with pencil, traced with multiliner, pencil erased, then colored with Copic marker.

I’m happier with the first than the second.

I hope to fit a couple more pieces of jewelry on this page!


Free Coloring Page – Festive Fanoos

I’m pleased to offer this free coloring page for your enjoyment.  This is my interpretation of a fanoos lantern, a decorative object popular in North Africa and throughout the Muslim world.  Muslims commonly associate the fanoos with the holy  month of Ramadan.  Others simply appreciate them for their classical, ornate beauty.
