To celebrate my 5th year anniversary of keeping sketchbooks I decided to do a sort and label all of them. Over the last 2 years I have had to stack these books in more efficient ways...but I am afraid I will have to find a new shelf soon...
(three books here are ongoing - the current one No. 46, my Zoo book and my colour book.)
There are about 8 different sketchbooks in there(and most covered with different paper) but when stacked end on they look lovely and uniform!!!!
this is where it all began 5 years ago.... little doodles with notes every where...(what my travel sketches used to be)
There is no doubt that practice and hard work (loving every moment and especially enjoying the process as much as the end results) does lead to development of skills.
Thanks for all the inspiration and encouragement - certainly going online (which I did 16 months after starting) made a huge impact!
