Small Artist Sketchbook 2022 – Pages 30 and 31

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. A sofa with a dual personality, and next to it some faces.

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. I often mix magenta and red paint when I am painting to get a very rich red but I don’t usually layer the two like I did here. I wonder why I never do it because I really love how this look. (I have made a note so that I don’t forget about doing this. Because that is what happens, I try something, I like it, and then…poof, next day, all gone out of my head…)

    Both pages are great but I especially like what you did with the sofa. It’s visually appealing and incorporates so many of the mixed media materials and approaches you use.

      Thank you. I really enjoyed adding on to the photo. And it’s a really easy and fun thing to do – you have a guide as to where you will end up but what changes you make along the way, well, it’s infinite. Plus, you know, I just love furniture and depicting it in any way.
