Round 8: Joanne’s sketchbook

The final of the circle and this one was a sketchbook of blind drawings – not my forte I think, but I tried some of these in my life drawing classes:

Round 7: Bryony Miles’s sketchbook

I did quite a few sketches in this book, but unfortunately forgot to scan the pages before sending it back on its journey.

Round 6: Leanne’s sketchbook

I had planned on doing lots of sketches whilst I was away at the bronze foundry, but ended up not doing any there, so a bit of a sparse contribution from me this time.

Round 4: Andrea’s sketchbook

A lovely grey sketchbook (might have to get myself one of these!). Sketches from life drawing classes, photograph of an old boat and my latest sculpture:

Round 3: Carol’s sketchbook

Due to Christmas and illness, my contribution to this sketchbook was a bit sparse – that, and I forgot to photograph what I did put in!

Round 2: Dorothy’s sketchbook

Dorothy’s sketchbook had already gone around the circle once and was on it’s second time around. This gave me the opportunity to see how things had been done before. There was some great work in this book, but it was a jumble of different things which didn’t give me ideas to work on what people had done before me. This highlighted that a theme to a sketchbook could be a very good idea. With no theme, I worked in watercolour as I am experimenting with this medium at the moment.

I think I will have to set myself a theme if there is none specified in the next sketchbook.

Round 1: My sketchbook

I decided to try just working on one object and its development into sculptures. I chose to work with a dried thistle root, or at least I think that is what it is – it was found in a field on a local walk.

I included this image in the sketchbook with the following note:

These are images of a dried thistle root (or at least I think that is what it is!). My sketches are from thinking about using as the inspiration for a sculpture. If this object inspires you to do anything in relation to it, it would be interesting to see, if it doesn’t then feel free to do anything else!

Sketchbook circle

I have joined in this round of the OCA’s sketchbook circle, with the aim of improving my sketchbook work and making myself explore different ways of working. I will post my work on this page (and the influences from the other members if they agree to it).
