Drawing and painting is a fun hobby. I also like coloring pictures with crayons. I use a drawing board to put my paper on, it is better than using a table. When I paint pictures with watercolors I also use my drawing board. When I have an idea of something to draw and don’t have enough time to color or paint a picture, I will sketch my ideas into my sketchbook. Actually, I think my sketchbook contains some of my greatest art works.
