two sketchbook pages

I've also been asked to include more sketchbook pages, although my sketchbooks are usually just working out ideas for larger paintings. Here's just a drawing for drawing's sake. from a handmade sketchbook of arches HP. 11x8". watercolor and Tombo 4B pencil.
Again, just a working sketch, to try out some color for a hose which is in a larger painting that I'm almost finished with which will be posted soon. The teabag is nothing. These are from a smaller hand made sketchbook. watercolor and Mars 7B pencil on Arches HP. My smaller sketchbook is 7x5" made out of an old book. I've also been urged to open the comments page, so here it is.


  1. Thanks for including all of the info about your process and materials and for posting these exquisite sketches. What a treat!

    I was just wondering why you had no comments on such beautiful work! Your sketches are wonderfully loose, love the way you've used the colour here.

  3. It took me long enough to get back here to your blog, but now that I am here, I'm adding you to my Bloglines list tout de suite! Did you get J to make sketchbooks for you? One of the most fun things about using wc is playing around with white space---and look what a brilliant job you've done with these and the big drawing below.
