Small Artist Sketchbook 2022 – Pages 32 and 33

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. My sewing machine. And a grandmother and her granddaughter outside on a snowy night.

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!

    Ah, I love your grandmother and granddaughter image. Both evocative and poignant particularly on a morning when I have been wandering down memory lane.

      Thank you. I love this sewing machine as I loved all my previous ones. There is a nice feeling to sitting down to the machine and setting off in creating something from pieces.

    As you know from past conversations, I had a special relationship with my own maternal grandparents so the magical, dreamy quality to that image was particularly evocative for me.

      Thank you. This was done in gouache which as you know, I don’t like much, yet here, it’s just the right thing. The only other medium that I think might have worked for something like this was pastels, or maybe colored pencils.

      Thank you. Ah, the sewing machine, I can’t imagine my home without one, even if I don’t do nearly the sewing I used to. And grandmother pictures always come from my happy memories of both my grandmothers.
