The Art of a Sketchbook - Friday

"You can't do sketches enough.
Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh."
~John Singer Sargent                      

This week I have a couple of sketches I did recently.  I saw some sunglasses on my desk and sketched them in my  6" x 9", Aquabee Super Deluxe sketchbook.   Again, not my favorite sketch book ... you can see through the page that I have sketched something on the back of that page.  This paper is rough and not the smooth paper I prefer.

I'm still working on trying to fill up this sketchbook so I sketched my thumb on the same page as I had glued a sketch of an eye.

As John Singer Sargent say's ...  "You can't do sketches enough.  Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh."


  1. Love the idea of drawing sunglasses!
    Says so much to me.

  2. I've noticed that when I draw with ink in my Aquabee Super Deluxe spots will go through to the other side rendering it almost useless. Maybe I was originally drawn to the square format (pardon the pun).
