Sketchbook Project 2011
I signed up for the Sketchbook Project, it looks like fun. I chose 'A Face in the Crowd' as my theme and my little Moleskine sketchbook arrived soon after.....gulp!
It's going to go to the Brooklyn Library after the tour, I even have a library ticket and can keep track of my sketchbook once it's there and how many times someone looks at it. Amazing or what?
So now all I have to do is fill it up! This is a completely new experience as I normally draw what I see around me, but here I'm going to have to experiment a bit more. That's a good thing (I think!)
I'm going to try and do 2-3 pages a week, hopefully finishing before the end of the year.
The first problem I had was the quality of the paper..it's the flimsy moley paper that's in the little pocket sketch books. It doesn't take watercolour and isn't good with coloured pencil either, you can see through it!
Here are the first few pages.
Now onto page 6 and 7, and I will try and perfect my sticking and gluing method.
