sketchbook exchange

I'm taking part in (and organising heaven help me!) a sketchbook exchange with an art group I belong to. 20 people are taking part in 2 groups of 10 over 10 months. Each sets a theme for, and starts off a book that ultimately comes back to them, to keep, with work by all of their group. Just hoping everyone keeps up! It can really spoil things if they don't.

My theme is Places that are special to you - place/room/whatever

Of course mine is of Cornwall



watercolour, gouache, coloured pencil and charcoal pencil on sanded paper. Page size for everyone is 21cm square.

The book builds as it travels, each adding their page in a concertina fashion. The cover goes on when it's finished and comes back to me. There are some really good people taking part so looking forward to the finished thing

Re: sketchbook exchange

Sounds like a fun project!!! Didn't you do something similar before? These will be such treasures when they come back.

Re: sketchbook exchange

yes I took part in a couple of international ones a while back - one was brilliantly succesful, everyone kept up and no one let us down. I love my book from it and it went to an exhibition and talk in the US along with the others from our group.

In the other one well known artist backed up about 6 sketchbooks and didn't respond to emails and eventually sent them on without working in them - but casused a lot of annoyance
