Jo started our sketchbook with a lovely monoprint of a peony, which I scanned and used as a starting point for some drawing. But then I went off on a slightly different tangent following my trip to Rome during half term…
Its always a struggle to start a new sketchbook for me. I have lots of ideas but find it difficult to commit to one, and also keep in mind that someone else needs to be able to get enough from it to be able to respond. After lots of deliberation (and tea) i decided to go out with my camera and see what interested me.
I love working with textures as a starting point, and on my walk I found a building that was in the process of being demolished. Half of the building still stood, and I could see the layers of plaster and brick that told the story of the life this building must have had.
