A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Hello everyone,

So I've had this sketchbook for a little while & anything new that i want to try out (art supplies, techniques, tutorials) it gets done in here.

I would love to post everything up, but i'm just going to show you my favorites and the ones i'm most proud of - LOL - this is the power invested in me...


Then i have begun the 'Start a Sketchbook Habit' (after seeing a few others do it, i became intrigued) so you'll also see those pages here (which is basically all that is going into this sketchbook, because i think there is just enough space for 21 double pages.



Size : A5, 110gsm
Medium : Anything goes (Watercolour/WC Pencils/CP/Oil Pastels/Pitt Pens/Graphite)

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Tania this will be a good one to follow. Love the goldfish in the cup. That sketch a day habit seems to be catchy, I still haven't look at it yet. You've got some good ideas going there.

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Tania, this is great! Your Day Three reminds me of the doodling chapter in Bert Dodson's book, Keys to Drawing with Imagination: Strategies and Exercises for Gaining Confidence and Enhancing Your Creativity (2006). Scroll down to look at pages 11 through 21. Neat!!!

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Tania, I love your goldfish sketch!

I started the "Start a Sketchbook Habit" yesterday. LOL I think your "How do I feel" sketches came out better than mine. I only found things in maybe four or five squares out of at least about 16. Now I have to find a glue stick, or a bottle of glue, or something sticky so I can do day 2. I like what you did with the Day 2 pages too.

Hi Tania - Great start to your Sketchbook. I particularly like the goldfish in the jug - beautifully done. And your other sketches are very good - you've been really busy!

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Tania - I'm so glad you are doing the 21 Day Sketching Habit. It is so fun to see what other people do with the exercises. I got stopped around day 12 or so because I need some dedicated time in my studio to play with different mediums. BUT, I have still been doing some kind of sketching every day until I can get back to it, so I guess the habit is taking hold!

Your goldfish in the cup is so well done! And the shine on those cherries is fantastic! I think my favorite is the exercise on Part to Whole. I love how imaginative your extensions are. And I also really like the "How do I Feel" pages. I was quite surprised at how much pure FUN that one is to do.

Really great work! I'll be watching for more.

Jean

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Tania, these are great! So cool to see your versions of the Start a Sketchbook Habit exercises. Excellent designs. I love those cherries too, and the finny hair girl is fascinating. Good job on the goldfish in a glass cup too, that's excellent.

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments - I have a huge smile on my face.

I decided to do this sketchbook habit because I don't always feel like i'm imaginative enough, like i always need a reference to draw and doing that "Part to Whole" on day two made me realize that if i set my mind free i can draw from imagination without having a reference picture - it was quite liberating.

I too like that picture of the goldfish in the cup - it's from a reference photograph on Drawspace.

Thank you all very much for dropping in, today is Day 7, which means i need to post Days 4-6 - i forgot my flash at home today, but will definitely post tomorrow. (Monday morning syndrome....)

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Looking at everyone's work with this "sketchbook habit" project I decided to take a look at the site. You are all doing so wonderfully well at it Tania, your day 3 work looks great - I particularly like the boxes on the bottom of the right page - quite descriptive, can't wait to see more!

Re: A5 Experimental Sketchbook

Hi Tania,

Glad to see this book, and another sketch-a-day person (I'm doing that as well, though not utilizing a specific source or program). The goldfish are excellent!
