Watercolor Sketchbook Tour Video

Today I wanted to share a sketchbook tour of my watercolor paintings! If you watch me on the Periscope app (@Paige_Poppe) you may be familiar with this Moleskine sketchbook. It has been nicknamed the #PersicopeSketchbook, because I would paint in it while broadcasting on the app + chat with you.

There are just 2 pages left at the end of the sketchbook, so I wanted to share the progress I've made it in so far, and talk a bit about the story or mindset behind each painting. Some are just for fun, for color experimentation, or have a lot of meaning to me.

I feel very re-inspired to create videos lately, so I hope you are enjoying them! My favorite part to edit is the beginning intro because it gives me a chance to be artsy with film, and I love playing with new mediums. Film is a medium just as much as painting, and it is interesting to experiment with. So far my intros are short 20 to 30 second mash-ups, but I am thinking of creating some longer versions in a similar way. I think that could be so fun! Stay tuned.

IMG_4470 I have a bit of a love affair with this building. I drive past it twice a day going to and coming from work, and always sneak a peek as I go by. Yesterday I just had to stop and get a closer look. I love the blue-toned glass front and brick facade. Yeah...I'm basically obsessed with this little structure. But I'll have more on that in another post! As for my outfit, I loved how the rugged exterior went well with my utilitarian vest and purse. Although this purse might look like a girly piece, I consider it utilitarian because it is roomy and has so many pockets, allowing me to tote my DSLR and sketchbook wherever I go.

For work I wore just this dress with a pair of silver Toms and it just felt way too girly for me. I threw on my vest and boots and soon as I got home. Although I couldn't wear this vest to work so I had an exception, I always try remember to stay true to myself and my personal style. It will give you a lot more confidence when you're just being you!

Thanks so much for reading my posts! I hope that you have been enjoying my effort to include a little more of my architectural interests into my blog. Have a great weekend! x, Paige
