Small Artist Sketchbook 2022 – Pages 12 and 13

We are on a journey through another one of my small artist sketchbooks. As with all my books of this type, I take a sketchbook and fill it with whatever I feel like doing at the time. No planning, just enjoyment.

This book was done between August 2020 and February 2022, more or less (I date each page as I do it).

I don’t go through the book page by page in order, though in general the earlier images are at the front and the later ones following – but sometimes I skip pages and come back later, or do some other thing. No reason, that is just how I do it.

Let’s take a look.

Here’s today’s page spread.

Here are individual views of the pages.

If you have any questions as to the materials or techniques I used, let me know. I love to answer questions!

      Thank you. In real life it looks even better, I could not get a photo without a kind of shiny wrinkle in some parts. I started off with this, got to this point right away, and was going to do more when I realized it was as it was meant to be. I felt the same way, it really captured my attention and imagination. It is very odd how this happened.

          This one did for sure. I had no idea when I started what it would be, and certainly no intention of stopping almost as I started. But it was obvious when to stop. Funny how that happens. One of the reasons for saying, art is an adventure.

    WOW. Wonderful! Every time I see one of your sketchbook posts I’m inspired to do sketchbook things again but then I let other things get in the way and I tell myself it’s just as well because they wouldn’t be worth doing anyway and then I do images on a computer bec it’s easier. 🙄 ….. This may be the post that finally has me so excited I open one of those dusty sketchbooks again. LOVE it! 🥰

      Thank you. I prefer working in an actual book to digital work because I don’t like sitting at the computer for too long, and, I really like the physical sensations of drawing, or the paint, or using glue, etc. Having these books lets me do anything I want on a small scale, I like the variety.

        The books scare me, like I should put only perfectly perfect things in them bec they’re books. My mind knows that I ought to relax & use them to practice, too (I certainly need it), but — 🤷🏻‍♀️. Anyway, thank you for posting these: I’m going to try the sketchbook thing again.

          You can always tear out the pages you don’t like, or paint over them. That is what I say to myself. Sometimes a messed up page that I then rework ends up going somewhere better than my original plan.
