Small Artist Sketchbook 2022 – Pages 52 and 53

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!

    I thoroughly enjoy the lightness and nature of your art. It seems to come from a place of genuine discovery and pleasure. Wonderful work.

          Ever since I read this comment I have been thinking about it. I have done some stitching on paper, very rudimentary, and it works well. My machine has lots of stitch selection and (head slap) it occurred to me that I could experiment with some of those options and see what happens. Then there is of course the free motion style which gives a looser and less regimented look. I’m mulling this over kind of in the back of my mind…

    When looking at both pages together, I see lots of vertical shapes. I think that is sort of an interesting thing with free flow sketchbooks. Sometimes, one thing influences another and it is not even apparent at the time. fun stuff!

      You are so right. Even if I do the pages months apart, I often think I am influenced by whatever was next to it (in looking back after I do the page, not while I am doing it). Guess it makes sense, you never know what your mind is taking in.
