    Newer Older

    just another book started and another one of these title pages... but a few interesting comments (well it is interesting to me anyway!)
    1. last daily sketchbook was completed in 22 days (my previous period was 5-6 weeks) and I have been extremely busy at work during this period....I just never stop!
    2. this page was an exercise in how fast and loose and messy can I draw my boxes...
    3. I used my squirrel brush that I bought in Lisbon (I call it my Omar brush as it is the same that he uses) and because it contains so much more water I was getting some interesting effects... I was purposely trying to be loose. I really want to use this brush more!!!!
    3. shadows done with a grey pitt brush pen
    4. I am REALLY loving using full pans.. this grid is based on my colour selections of the square schmincke set I bought in london (thanks again Paul!) it is a bit too heavy to take on location but is working great at home.'5. I htink I could ramble away all night .....

      Love this Liz! It reminds me of all the brick patterns I have been drawing at work lately (or how I wish I could draw them.) I am getting ready to leave on my first real sketching trip and am debating half-pans vs whole. I'm used to whole pans, but you're right: they're too heavy. Worried too that my Schmincke palette may be confiscated by airport security. Have you ever had trouble? I am traveling from the U.S. To Italy and then France.

      how exciting!!! I have never had any trouble with my paints ging through security.
      Re;half pans. I made sure that I had extra supplies so that I could swap when they got down
