I love sketchbooks.
I love choosing and buying them, I love using them, and I love to look at other people's. The painting above is one I did this morning in my sketchbook without having a reason, other than just wanting to draw eyes really and the rest tagged along. Now it reminds me of a certain hollywood actress - (non intentional!)
I then wondered as a matter of interest of what was in my sketchbook exactly 10 years ago this month. I've been keeping sketchbooks for some years now so I knew there would be something and below is what I found.
I've noticed a similar way of drawing the features, but at least the 'mud' that I used for shadows has improved a bit!
