This is the final product of my next Sketchbook Project entry. Once again, Mr. Johan Lindeberg.
This is the beginning of the second entry in my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. I shouldn’t be drawing/painting Johan Lindeberg because he no longer follows me on Twitter (see THIS post). But he’s a very cool guy and I like his whole black & white thing.
Check back to see the finished product. It’ll be black & white. Duh!
I finally have started my Sketchbook Project sketchbook. I think I’ve settled on the theme of “Twitter followers”. I mentioned that in a tweet a few months ago, and got a reply from @belindafireman almost immediately. She followed me for that reason. Well, that settled it… Twitter followers it is.
It took a while to get going because I replaced the cheap paper that was in the book with a little bit better, 90lb watercolor paper, and I couldn’t find a way to staple the danged thing together. Fixed that last week, and figured I better get going.
Anyway, since Belinda was my muse… AND she followed me just because I said I was gonna do this, she was my obvious choice to lead the parade of pages in the sketchbook. So, without further delay… Belinda Fireman!
Be sure to check her out – she’s a fabulous artist! belindafireman.wordpress.com
Yet another portrait… of sorts. This one started out as a monochromatic watercolor. Can you tell which color it was?
I never know when to finish something, so I end up putting it away for a couple days, then I peek at it for a few seconds and put it back up. Later on I’ll stare at it for a longer period of time, then put it back up. Today, during lunch, I went back over it with blue, and I just wasn’t happy with that at all, so I added some other colors in there and decided to outline it in ink. The brush pen was a painfully slow way to do this, but thankfully I had a jar of India ink in my backpack, so I tackled it with that and a large brush, going back later with a small brush for the details. Et voila!
I’m usually sketching/painting during my lunch hour, but for whatever reason I’m just not that into it lately. This one, for example, has taken a week just to get motivated enough to finish. But you know how this goes… it never really feels quite finished. Again, though, it IS just a sketchbook. On to the next page.
