Last week we had a fun session when we explored a number of different ways of how I could finish off a page. There were so many great suggestions from the chat and I created three different options as shown in the above photos. In the end I combined a few of the ideas to finish off the page.
It’s been really great to have a few weeks of ‘contained compositions’ – making sure sketches and elements align and having clearly defined white space. But I’m now moving to open compositions which involve overlapping, merging, extending! I’m working a little ahead of the group so that I have plenty to share during our next livestream.
Generally open compositions are harder than contained ones and so I’m taking risks and doing a few crazy experiments at the moment. A personal sketchbook should be a place where you are free to do this, don’t you think?
So here are my recent pages… and you’ll notice some of these crazy experiments at the end – the last few pages of Volume 167. There are even more to come in my next sketchbook! 🙂
And so ends Volume 167! You can see all the articles relating to this sketchbook here.
