Tutorial-How to Draw a Fun & Easy Turtle

Artwork: Zebra Zensations Technical Pen, Sarasa Clip Gel Pen and Mechanical Color Pencil in Hahnemühle Lilac 1584 dot-grid sketchbook

Susan Masters asked for a step-out for a Fun & Easy Turtle, so I did one. My example is blowing bubbles, so I’m using it for the Doodlewash prompt of Bubbles.

And here’s the step-out.

Tutorial-How to Draw a Fun Hippo

This morning I posted a review of the Hahnemühle 1584 Notebook at Doodlewash. The dot grid paper is so fine for creating step-outs and I love working on the purple paper for my examples. The color does half my work!

This was done in the Lilac version. I can’t wait to try out the Peach and Sea Green notebooks with the peach and green blank paper.

REVIEW: Hahnemühle 1584 Notebook

Hahnemühle has entered the Stationery FineArt line and given us the 1584 Notebook.

Yes, it has dot grid paper, but it also has blank colored paper! What?

Coming in Lilac, Peach and Sea Green, this notebook has three sections:

  • 40 sheets of dot grid
  • 20 sheets of blank color coordinated paper
  • 40 sheets of dot grid

So you’ve got the dot grid for notes, bullet journaling, tangle patterns and more, plus a section of colored paper for lively doodling and drawing!
