Ever since I first started art college I've kept a sketchbook. At first I found it laborious and self conscious but after time I grew to enjoy it and eventually to actually need it! My favourite size is A5 with a hard cover. I think this is because it reminds me of a normal sized book and although I don't read novels very often, I can relate to the excitement of looking at the cover and wondering what's lurking inside!
I love to look at other people's sketchbooks too and at a recent visit to the Beryl Cook exhibition I enjoyed her little sketches on scraps of paper as much as the finished paintings themselves!
All the pages shown here in this post are from my current sketchbook
In my last post I spoke of how my muse had elluded me. My sketchbook once again came to my rescue. This is the most recent page, I can't say what it means just yet but I'm sure after a couple of days it shall dawn on me! :)
