I seem to be going through sketchbooks at a crazy rate at the moment but I honestly don’t feel as if I am sketching that much. Instead, I feel as if I have a good flow and rhythm with my sketching – I’m fitting it into my daily life but I’m nowhere near the extreme excessive pace I have when I’m travelling. And I could certainly do a little more, especially in the evenings – doing some sketching research or sketching objects from my day.
I’m happy that I’m using my book freely – using it for working sketches and taking risks. I’m using it for rough people sketches, prep for a local 2 day workshop coming up this week (not always doing finished sketches) and also testing ideas (sometimes attempting mistakes) for my next SketchingNow course. I have an extremely demanding 2 months ahead of me so it will be interesting to see if I can maintain this pace of sketching. This smaller size book is working perfectly. It’s a Stillman & BIrn 5.5 x 8.5 softcover Alpha.
Here are my pages.
I hope you had a good sketching week!
And if you need to know… I’m happy to answer questions about the turquoise pigment testing contained in these pages!?!?
