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. First, my stove top; the other, something abstract.
Here are individual views of the pages.
Ok when I saw the abstract I thought ‘cow’ so stove top + cow = hamburger night?????
Oh dear. I did not mean to hurt any creature!
I like the chalkboard feel of the stove. (K)
Thank you. I do too. I washed India ink over the whole page and then used white gel pen to draw, then colored pencils as I liked.
I love the rich, velvety hues of the abstract piece and the chalkboard quality of the stove portrait.
Thank you. White ink and colored pencil on India ink.
