Sketchbookproject #2


Sketch number 2 "and suddenly..." when you turn the last curve of the driveway the view of the building looms quick...this is the window where the computer sits
a really grand view...it is a pretty boring sketch.
We'll see what the next one produces.
Used Golden acrylics as a watercolor and India ink. Onto these horribly thin journal pages from this journal sent by the project.
Thanks for looking...

I like the viewpoint and the limited palette-not boring at all. You are so right about the pages. I think mine will look fairly battered by the time I have finished it!
Thanks for your comment on my doll-most encouraging!

Hi, Mary! Lovely picture! And I don't think it is boring at all! I think it all depends on what you're used to. You may see it every day but to the rest of us it is new! I like the brown beams ... brown jumps forward while blue recedes and it gives nice depth! :-)

Wow, Mary I love the colors! I like in the window you put in a reflection, that shows detail. Since your pages are thin just put gesso on the back side of your painting to stiffen it up a bit. Another thing I do is use masking tape and then gesso over the masking tape. But I wouldn't worry about it, I think it looks great.

Nice colors, good details and the perspective is awesome. Good job.

Mar, it's great that you're sharing your sketches and I agree with s
Sarah that there's something very interesting going on here. The way that the "platform" splits the composition is very bold and opens up questions of "above and below". I hate working on thin paper. Could you "beef" your pages up a bit by priming them with some gesso, tissue paper, old phone book pages, or muslin?

Hey Mar - thought I'd pop on by to see what you're up to. I like the fact that you're sketching. It takes real discipline to stick to it. I have such little patience (perhaps a result of not having much time?) for sketching, even though in days of olde I did a heap of it. What I like about altered art and collage is that it's fast! Bing bang bong and you're done!!

This is not boring at all Mar, it's lovely.

Cool building too!
