Hello, fellow artists and nature enthusiasts! I’m delighted to welcome you to our “9 Days of Sketchbook Landscapes Acrylic Painting” online course. Over the next nine days, we’re going to embark on a creative journey that combines the wonders of acrylic painting with the unique charm of sketchbooks.
Now, you might be wondering, why paint in a sketchbook?
Well, let me share a secret with you—sketchbooks are a treasure trove for artists, and here’s why.
- Portability: Sketchbooks are like artistic companions that can travel with you anywhere.
- Spontaneity: Sketchbooks thrive on spontaneity. They encourage us to let our creativity flow freely without the pressure of creating a perfect, finished piece.
- Consistent Practice: The sketchbook is your practice arena. It’s where you can hone your skills, refine your techniques, and develop your artistic voice.
- Documentation: Think of your sketchbook as a visual diary of your artistic journey. It’s a place to document your ideas, experiences, and the evolution of your art over time.
- Cost-Efficiency: Sketchbooks are typically more budget-friendly than large canvases. They allow you to create a substantial body of work without breaking the bank.
So, as we dive into this course, remember that your sketchbook is more than just paper; it’s a gateway to artistic freedom, growth, and exploration.

Hi, I'm Debasree.
If we haven’t met yet, I’m really excited to introduce myself.
I’m an artist who loves painting with acrylics in sketchbooks. You can see all my sketchbook paintings here.
I’ve always had a deep passion for acrylic painting and have spent countless hours exploring landscapes within the pages of sketchbooks. The unique charm of having a landscape span across two pages of a sketchbook has captivated me for a long time.
So, I’ve decided to merge these two loves – sketchbooks and landscape painting – and share this exciting journey with all of you.
So, get ready to explore the world of sketchbooks together.
Together, we’ll learn and have fun painting landscapes in our sketchbooks.
