Large Artist Sketchbook 2021 Pages 41 and 42

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.

    These are both fabulous but I really like the page with the tower building. That one is almost dream-like with the way the building merges with the background, like it might be wearing a cloak of invisibility or made of mirrors.

      Thank you. I wondered if I had left it too vague and unfinished, but I decided I liked the combination of colors like mist and the more defined lines, and let it be.

      Thank you, yes, it is funny how these two ended up together (since I don’t go through the book page by page it is kind of random who is paired with whom – who? – whatever). But I think they fit together well.

    The one on the left has great movement in it, a feeling of a slowly gathering storm, still on the ground but thinking of taking off upward. I love this one.

      Thank you, it started off much simpler but I was disappointed with it, it was so tame, so I just scraped paint over it all and then it suddenly gained a direction. I like it better the longer I have had it to look at, it has grown on me.
