Last week in my Zeta book

August 11, 2014 | 4 Comments


This week life is crazy (with sketchbook skool commitments and trying to get everything done before I head off to Brazil for the USK symposium later next week ) but I still want to keep posting here as well… so here are a few photos of my sketchbook from last week. I will try to find time to scan and post later in the week.

I am enjoying the Zeta book more than I expected and although I don’t normally like spiral bound books, the Stillman and Birn books are so sturdy and well made that it is nice to use. I love the book sitting flat. The small size is a constraint but fun. (and btw the blue on this page seems to have gone a little wild on the web… a lot more subtle in real life!)

Just a reminder – this is not my normal book – I am using it as a fill-in for 2-3 weeks before I go to Brazil. For details on my normal sketchbooks please check out this page.


  • Especially love the windows in the first piece, the teacup opposite and the yellow teapot. Absolutely wonderful sketches as always, Liz.

    I really love the still life of the pear. I like how you layer color upon color to achieve a convincing 3-D effect without the colors turning to randomness and mud. It makes for an interesting composition.

    They are all really adorable, Liz. Nevertheless I always have my favorites. In this case I debate myself between, the subtlety of the colors of the first one and the force overflowing of those of the third drawing.

    Crazy as you may be with SBS, all that planning really paid off. The klass is exceptionally effective — even the tour through your sketchbooks was helpful. Plus the dress looks great! Lovely fabric.
