Painting Tools – Sketch Book

Having an assorted set of sketches is vital to creating your design and organize your portfolio.

Setting your images on paper gives your window clients an idea of what you have to offer them in design choices. By having a complete set of images set on paper you also have a way to demonstrate your talent.

Sketchbooks:

Pre-draw images to use in the holiday theme you are working with. Compile a sketchbook for each of the major holidays.

Sketchbook_Poinsettias_Candles03Detail the sketch for an idea of what the complete image will be when finished so you also have an idea of how you want the image to appear when you paint it. Create single sketch images out of elements you will use for the complete design. An example of Poinsettia and Candles design and Candy Cane w/ Bow is shown.

For The Christmas Theme
Sketch these individual images:

Holly Leaves and Berries
Candy Canes
Poinsettia Flowers (My Favorites!)
Candles
Snowmen
Santa (Of Course!)
Reindeer
Stockings                                                                           
Snowflakes
Presents or Gift Boxes
Christmas Trees
Ornaments
Bows
Bells
Teddy Bears
Dolls

With these single images, you can create a host of designs.

A Christmas Wreath incorporates several holly leaves and a bow for a colorful decoration on a door top. Holly leaves can trim and decorate difficult window areas and accent your greeting scene.

Create the sketches first, then add photos of your finished designs to create your portfolio!
