|The Stillman & Birn Sketchooks, I currently have four books....two down and two to go!|
It's always exciting to open the books to see what treasures are inside! Seems like a long time ago when we started this project but there's no rush or pressure with this project, which is what makes it so enjoyable. I can't wait to get my own book back at the end of the project.
|Looking forward to seeing what's inside my own sketchbook when it returns later this year, seems like a long time since this drawing in 2014|
|Collection of Tree seed pods from the park in Barcelona, a mix of graphite and watercolour|
|Detail of watercolour and graphite studies of maple seeds|
|Not terribly happy with this effort, so opted to complete another page in Ida's book.|
|Iris foetidissima seed heads, my second attempt|
If you've never been involved in such a project or don't keep a sketchbook, I really do recommend it!
Next week: I'll be writing a review of the two new watercolour papers from Saunders Waterford and discussing the changes to Fabriano papers.
|Next week! Testing old and new papers, using a variety of watercolour techniques|
