Out with the old and in with the new

March 18, 2011 | Leave your thoughts

Getting ready for my new book which I will start next week.

Tomorrow is my last day in Vol 36. I hate coming to the end of a old book – there is so much of my life in it but once I make the switch I love the crispness of a new book. I didn’t post the first page of my current book at the time so here it is- next to the title page for the new.

The 5 week period for these 120 page sketchbooks is becoming a standard for my daily sketchbooks – even when sketching a lot in my garden book (don’t know how that is working – a sign that I am sketching more than usual at the moment)

Continuing with my tradition – I do try to mix up the layout and whether I record the colours or the actual state of my palette. Believe it or not there have been 6 (yes 6) changes to paint selection between the two! And BTW – I love the fact that in my own sketchbook, even though I am an architect, all pans do not have to be drawn equal or perfectly…oh! but you all know that already!

Ok – time to hit the sack and get ready for Sketchabout Week 2! I hope the rain stays away!
