*Update: A fellow artist mentioned that she would like to see the original sketchbook entry without the influence of Photoshop. Great idea, so..here it is. Oh, I should probably say that the deep blue is acrylic paint smudged onto a blue watercolor wash with an old (worn out 😉 credit card). The “drawing” is simply herding shapes into figurative images with a black sharpie and a white Prismacolor pencil.
I don’t sketch enough. I draw just about every day, but it’s always with a project in mind. So, I decided to stretch the creative muscles and sign myself up for The Sketchbook Project. I didn’t let myself think about the theme, but picked a theme on impulse. I chose “in ten minutes”, figuring that this theme was about as open to interpretation as I could hope for.
The sketchbook has arrived but I haven’t actually started yet. It looks a little scary. It’s absolutely pristine. Kind of funny that I picked up my old sketchbook to plan the new one. I enjoyed looking back on some of the old pages so I’ll be posting many of them. This one I played with just a tiny bit in good old Photoshop.
