summer sketchbook

| 11 Comments

In addition to daily drawings (which were posted as I went along), while on vacation I kept an extra sketchbook. I used the same paper as I use for my regular journals, but made the pages twice as wide. Here are each of the two-page spreads in it. (If you click on any image, you can see an enlargement of it.)

Your sketchbook is fantastic!! It looks like you had a great time. Thanks for posting them.

You mentioned that you used two different sizes of paper, what kind of sketchbook do you use?

Elizabeth - this is a wonderful blog recording your daily activities beautifully! The combination of mediums and the book formats are great too.

Absolutely great sketchbook! Wonderful! congrats.

How can you find the time?
(Great drawings).

WOW! I'm speechless! and jealous - you are so persistant! and dedicated!

Liz, These are absolutely wonderful...so beautiful. You have developed this style that is delicate yet clear and strong. Sometimes funny and sometimes filled with such emotion. Thank you for these daily treats and for your inspiration.

Thank you all so much.

genine: I make my own sketchbooks of heavy watercolor/printmaking paper - more info on my process is in the "my materials: notes" link in the sidebar. A two-page spread in my regular sketchbook is roughly 5" x 8", so the landscape-shaped sketchbook opens to 5" x 16", approximately.

josé: On vacation, it is much easier for me to find time to draw and think, as all the things that are usually at the edge of my day-to-day life (rest, art, family) move to the center - where perhaps they've belonged all along.

Your summer sketchbook is both interesting and beautiful.
