Small Artist Sketchbook 2022 – Pages 46 and 47

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!

    Both pages are great but I love the intrigue of the left hand page – and also all the blues. It could be an illustration from one of your short poems that also suggests it is part of a wider narrative.

      Thank you. I understand what you mean. I use color however I think it looks right and I never saw the need for a color wheel, etc., but – in several classes and so on I’ve been exposed to it as part of the teaching, and I think it gives a good vocabulary with which to talk about color with others.

    I sense the beginning of a mystery novel for that first drawing. For the second drawing, I am putting in an order for that rug.

      You bet about the mystery. I see them everywhere. And why not? Life needs a little spicing up so often. As for the rug, I love depicting them and I bet I could make this rug in punch needle (very very slowly depending on the size of your room!)
