My sketchbook has been a place of swirling and tentacled heads lately.
A reflection of my frenzied mind I suppose.
Another collage sketchbook page. Prismacolor marker, ink pen, colored pencil, and torn pieces from an envelope.
Continuing the sketchbook pages based off of random bits of rescued paper. I have several pages prepped with paper pieces pasted in, (say that ten times fast!) and when I am feeling like doing a sketch I draw over or around the piece of rescued “trash” on that page. This one had a torn corner of a paint chip that I found on the floor. It became a plant pot. The plant is one living organism but with many heads, some are closer to the roots, others are growing further away.
Some new ideas are bubbling around as well. Thoughts on another series that I might begin when I complete the Lyrical series that I am fleshing out at the easel now. Right now it is an idea for a theme, but it needs time to expand and develop in my mind (and my sketchbook) before I begin.
More progress on this piece. She’s still not finished yet. I want to fine tune some things that I don’t like about it and fill in a background. She is sort of a stepping stone piece toward a series of works on canvas that I plan to begin soon.
