SKETCHBOOK STUFF



Just a page in my sketchbook - it's a Strathmore Visual Journal (90# watercolor paper) 9" x 12".  It's heavy enough paper for some collaging and gessoing and other fun stuff I might try.  For now, just a sketch I did that needed some color.  Watercolor added.


I think I should have left it at stage 2, but got carried away with the color!






















Now for some more housecleaning and getting my lessons ready for tomorrow's class...





Today is my brother-in-law's birthday.  We are the same age.  Happy Birthday, Mac!!!

well with going through a birdy phase at the moment I'm drawn to this! Is this in preparation for a full painting I wonder!

Judith Farnworth Art said...

Nice Rhonda... like the unusual composition... do you use your sketchbook to work things out for a full piece?

Debbie Nolan said...

Rhonda it is always a pleasure to see your sketches. Hope you are enjoying your classes. Have a great week.

Vandy said...

Lovely to see you use a sketchbook to work things out too. I love my notebook. Great way to work out compositions and colour schemes.

Thanks, everyone! I'm behind in my replies to comments - sorry - it's been (and still is) a busy week!

Sharon, Judith, and Vandy: For some reason I keep my sketchbook stuff separate - I really need to look at it as pre-paintings, don't I?
