I just decided to split my "sketchbook" thread so you could see the different journals I've got going at the same time. ESS is short for Essential Sketching Study. I will use this book to follow some of Suzette Morrow's Sketching Habit, as well as my regular figure sketching work. I added the butt icon for when I do post figure sketches so that you guys would know.
The Journal itself is one that I found in a stack of books in my attic. No clue why it ended up there but it was brand new. It's a Bienfang 50lb take along sketchbook. Its 8 1/2 by 11. It works well for pencil and pen work. Not thick enough for wet paint but pitt pens work well on it.
Here are the first few sketches, I skipped day 1 I did it in another thread but I have so many books going that I forget where it is
Day 2 "A and B". Oh I forgot to mention, this is the day 2 study to take scraps from newspaper or magazines that do not show a full object. you glue them randomly into the sketchbook and continue where the color and pattern takes you.
