Another Art Challenge??? · Gouache Landscape Painting · Fill a Sketchbook With Me! #7

Hi my loves. Welcome back to my sketchbook. Still
just trying to keep up that regular drawing habit, seeing what I can do in my sketchbook
with an hour or less. And this week, I’ve spent way more than an hour a day in my sketchbook.
TOO much time in my sketchbook. Because, I’m currently in the the throes of yet another
self-initiated art-challenge. I’m aiming to fill all my unfinished sketchbooks by the
end of the year. That’s 222 blank pages. And for this first week in the challenge, I decided
to get started by going through the 30 Ways to Fill a Sketchbook series that I started
around this time three years ago- can you believe that?! Anyway. I’ve been filming that,
and I hope to be able to edit it and get it up in the next few days for you all. It’s
been such a tough task that I set myself, it’s taken up all my time. But anyway, you’ll
get to hear about that in the ’30 Ways to Fill a Sketchbook in a Week’ video. So I won’t
spoil it! This was my entry for the landscape painting practice prompt. And was actually
one of the most enjoyable pages throughout the week. This has been a great challenge
for reminding myself of things I enjoy painting and random stuff that I’d neglected like cutting
and sticking and journalling. I’m really hoping this and the challenge of filling all my unfinished
sketchbooks, will lead me into the new year with a better sense of what I want to be doing
with my art. But if not, it’s genuinely just a great way for me to make stuff. Just stuff.
Just fill pages and have fun and make a mess- a lot of it has been a mess. So hopefully
the ‘Filling my Unfinished Sketchbooks’ video will be done by the end of the year, let me
know if you’re looking forward to seeing that. And I’d love to know if you have many blank
pages just waiting to be filled. And other than that, I wanted to keep my voice-over
short today and just let you enjoy the video. I need to go and catch up on all the life
stuff that I set aside while I spent all day everyday this week trying to fill up this
sketchbook. So thanks so much for watching. Thanks for joining me for this sketchbook
session, I hope you feel inspired to do a little something creative today as well. And
I’ll see you next week for the next one. Bye!

  37. Moshy McCoy says:

    I sat at my desk to work on commissions and happily got distracted by this video. I love your landscapes. They're my favorites to watch. I have 12 pages left in my current sketchbook that I plan on filling out by the end of the year to meet my resolution of filling two sketchbooks in 2019. Next year I plan on finishing a bunch of unfinished sketchbooks (4 in total) before the end of the year. I've been pushing myself to actually utilize them for ugly work and practice instead of just trying to do finished pieces in them.

  38. Isabella Jones says:

    30 ways to fill a sketchbook was three years ago??!!! i found your channel bc of that series i cant believe ive been a subscriber for so long !!

  42. Liz V. Art says:

    I can't believe it's been 3 years since that series! I think that's how I found you! 200+ pages sounds like a lot! I have about 100ish to do if I want to fill up my sketchbook before the end of the year and I felt like that was impossible. Maybe not? Haha! This piece turned out so pretty!

  43. Ashley Quam says:

    What a fabulous idea for a challenge!

  44. Elizabeth Claire says:

    I have always enjoyed your how to fill a sketchbook series and have gone back to it for inspiration when I am feeling stuck so I'm interested to see what you have been doing while revisiting it!

  45. SMART ARTIST says:

    It's so beautiful 😍 like wow!!

  46. SMART ARTIST says:

  47. Airship Pirate says:

  53. Rain drop says:

    It's a work day here in my country and I'm here watching your video! Good thing I have a room to myself and nobody sees me while my eyes get glued to the screen watching this beautiful piece come together. Yes, would definitely love to see all the pieces you paint, I myself love painting gouache landscapes so this was such a treat. Keep them coming! ❤

  59. Clémentine Mentine says:

    Hiya Minnie! I love what you do with gouache, the colours and the overall look of it. Looking forward to see what's coming!

  60. Clay Disarray says:

    I’ve an ‘ill-on-the-sofa’ day ahead, so this is perfect viewing. You’ve also inspired me to order in some sketchbooks 👍

  61. Ace Hardy says:


  62. Lilly Schwartz says:

    Wow, what a challenge! If I were to do this challenge I‘d be in a bit of a pickle! My main one still has more than a hundred pages and is already halfway full. I also have about 6 or 7 more with different paper that I pull out whenever I feel like it. My goal is to finish at least one of them until the year is over and it’s definitely not going to be the thick one! I’ll finish them all eventually, but I‘ll take it one at a time! 😂 and by the way, this painting is absolutely gorgeous! Gouache goals right there! By the way, did you finish the schoolism landscape sketching course? I‘m just working through that right now.

  63. Yanique Hutchinson says:

    I'm giving myself to the end of the year to finish mine. it's like 20+ pages left back and front. Good luck to you!

  64. Helen Colebrook says:

    This is absolutely stunning. Really love this style.

  65. Joe CKChan says:

    5:02 was perfect, I love it

  66. arcuda2001 says:

  69. KGF Creates Grace says:

    Very nice! I love your videos and paintings. I can honestly say that your work has been an inspiration to me for the past few years! Keep up the great work!

  70. Tessah Noreen says:

    i need to do this challenge. I have two that are begging to be finished

  71. Dee H says:

    I’m very excited about this, and I want to see everything related to it! And I may just go back through all of those videos & do the same, as I found you after that series, and never really want back to all of those suggestions. But now that you’re doing them again yourself, I’d love to join you. Thanks (as always) for the inspiration!!!

  72. Nawal says:

    So so beautiful, bravo Minnie ! 🎈

  73. Hannah Jacobson says:

    Absolutely beautiful painting!

  74. Ceridwen Fine Art says:

  78. Donna Bray says:

    Please….what tape are you using? It pulls off so clean. Thank you! Your work is always amazing.

  79. Nicki Battaglia says:

    Terrific! I was thinking of the same!! Ive got 4 to finish up! Gonna do it!! Thanks for the inspiration! Loveartsketchingeveryday!!

  80. Melanie HP says:

    Definitely looking forward to the video. Let me just grab my unfilled sketchbooks. 😅

  81. Gary Weybright says:

    I work in several sketchbooks everyday. Mine are no where this neat, tidy, and frame worthy, but I love it, it calms me gives me inspiration and I enjoy the process. Claudia

  82. The Niqabi Diaries says:

    What a great idea! I get so annoyed with myself for having empty pages in my sketchbooks. I need to do this.

  83. ALLJ Art says:

    I have loads of sketchbooks half filled. I kinda forgot what sketchbook I actually liked and bought a bunch that only take dry media. Haha. Oops. Need to buy watercolour sketchbooks again!

  84. Trupti K says:

    I'd be inundated if I started this challenge, haha! I have so many unfinished sketchbooks. This landscape turned out beautiful, Minnie. I especially loved the textured of the road. 🖤

  85. Brooke ! says:

    So beautiful and very relaxing to watch/listen to ❤️

  86. Yvonne Raphael says:

    A joy to watch. I always enjoy the meditative quality of your voice and music selections too. Your painting was lovely. It’s something I would have gravitated to in a gallery.

  87. Whatever says:

    You use angled brushes like me. 🙂

  88. Katywu Ste says:

    Gorgeous but it needed a wee house to make it completely yours

  89. Laurie Marie says:

    your link to the Holbein Gouache (US) goes to a Headphone Adapter

  90. AndraMarie says:

    I've had a sketchbook that i have been working on for 3 years. I've decided I want to try and fill it before the end of this year. But I only have 11 pages to go! It's not all that many but I work so much it's going to be hard to try and find time to fill it!
    I can't wait to see all your sketchbooks! This piece is amazing!

  91. Kerry says:

    You nailed it 💜

  92. Clara Scissorhands says:

    Me: watches a whole video of her doing that
    Me: how did she DO that

  93. Rachael Farmer says:

    That is so beautiful – and you execute it with such skill. Love your videos and your work

  94. SarahWritesEtc says:

    This is such an awesome idea for a personal challenge! I can't wait to see what art you make.

  95. Mar Cial R says:

    Te ha quedado pre-cio-so! Keep it up!
