Sketching


Awhile back Susan gave me a sketchbook she made. It was nice to have a sturdy "manly" looking sketchbook. I've actually done a number of sketches in it as I planned some clay pieces and some jewelry pieces. She suggested I try some color and gave me some cheap watercolors, just like that plastic box you had you had in grade school. After seeing the 1000 Journals documentary I was more open to using other media into the sketchbook. I don't know if I'll ever make these clay pieces but I liked adding the color to the sketches.

I do like the sketches, Don. My idea sketch book is a huge inspiration to me though I must say it has to be a cheap sketch book for me to loosen up. A beautiful handmade book would probably have me fully flummoxed.
