I work in sketchbooks a lot. Here are some recent pages from my book titled “Integuments”.
This book began as an exploration of basically black-and-white paint pen drawings. But gradually I began to add colour, and these latest entries are very colourful indeed.
Perhaps I am in need of the colour.
Like many artists, I am prefer solitary, self-directed work. I cherish my alone time. I have even felt that I could happily live in a cave, as long as it were reasonably dry and warm, with a few things to eat and a few art supplies… haha!
Now that we’ve all been living in the covid cave for quite some time, I realize the ideal is… well, perhaps not so ideal after all.
I and many others are realizing this. I’m very glad I have paints, and brushes, and a sketchbook, to create a colourful world here in my cave. Eventually I may even get back into my studio to create some larger paintings on canvases.
Meanwhile, perhaps you in your cave can catch a little spark of joy when you see these sketches.
Thank you for your interest, dear Reader, and may we meet again one sunny day.
