Learning to play

sketchbook page 1sketchbook page 2

Another of my birthday presents was this inspiring book about artists’ sketchbooks and journals.  It is encouraging me to play a bit more.  These images started with some random paint marks applied with a palette knife, using left over paint.  I also stuck on fragments of a paper bag that I like the colour of, and a sticker from a new pair of trousers (because stickers are fun, right?)  I then used these pages to do some sketching from my figure studies book.

One thought on “Learning to play

  1. I really enjoy your work, Carole. You are creative in unexpected ways, which is rare…
    I love these random paint marks combined with the more realistic drawings underneath. Magnificent work…these belong in an exhibition!
