Beyond Barriers

Sketchbook Project 2013     Graphite

No matter what sort of beyond, there are intriguing spaces to travel.  Unfortunately, there may be limitations.  Some places are dangerous, ill advised, some not yet possible.  But, the mind’s eye can lead you… anywhere.  Where do you want to go?

Gone Fishing

Fishing for…information, gossip, compliments, sustenance, trouble…             Ideas?

Up to you, how to see this one.

The Sketchbook Project 2013             Graphite

From family photos, a collage of images brought together through sketch.  The past rearranged.

The Lake

Sketchbook Project  2013               Graphite 

I’ve entitled this sketch,  ” At the lake” because…   I’ve  always enjoyed trips to a lake.  But..there’s something exciting and a little bit creepy about the surroundings;murky water, snakes, mystery lurking.  This sketch captures how I felt as a kid, near the lake.

Sketchbook pages 11-12

Lightening up.   A playful, mostly linear teen-dream.

Sketchbook 3-4

These pages are created on stipple paper and the drawing pencils are augmented with liquid graphite or liquid pencil.

I’ve never played with liquid pencil before.  Mixed with a little water, the result is a silvery paint-like substance.  Fun!

Sketchbook Project 2013

Done it again! Signed up for 2013.

This year, I’m committed to graphite with a touch of white acrylic here and there to pick up what the eraser can’t.  It’s all about the values, and an other worldliness.  My  objective is to concentrate on basics; strengthening my compositions through black and white values, and giving my right brain a work out, but keeping it raw, (resisting the temptation to refine).    I’m also experimenting with different papers. I’ll  eventually paste the pages into the sketchbook.  I’m  reserving one color perhaps, to introduce  later on..maybe;)

Above are pages 2 and 3.  Lots more to come.
