Here’s another one of my artist sketchbooks for you to see. It was finished in May of 2021 but the artworks were done over the previous year or so, I guess.
I’ll be showing you page spreads, one each week, for as long as the book goes on.
As you know, I make these books for my own enjoyment. I work on a page as the inclination strikes me and I never have a plan for the book or for the artwork that goes into it. There is no theme, no meaning, other than what each image shows the viewer and the viewer takes away from the experience.
In this book I did artwork on the front and back of each page. There’s nothing written associated with the images, and the images paired in each page spread do not relate to each other in any way except for being side by side.
I hope you enjoy looking at this book!
Here is the page spread for today:
And here are the individual pages.
I love the collection of birdbaths. I also really like the moodiness of the right hand page. It makes me think of a scene from a noir movie.
Thank you. I did the birdbaths a long time ago as I auditioned them for a Fictive Dream illustration. Source photos from the internet or store websites. I found I really liked doing them. They have great details.
Very enjoyable to regard.
Thank you. Since I didn’t do the pages in order, I am enjoying how the page spread ends up looking as we go through it now.
You’re very welcome!
❤️ your sketch books the most
Thank you. I have been spending more time on them in recent years. I like doing them.
So nice to see! What size are these?
Thank, you. This book is 12″ x 9″.
So many masterpieces!
Thank you. This book is full of a lot of art since I did work on front and back of the paper. I like the effect and having so much to look at.
