After starting off the day looking back on yesterday’s work in collage, I felt I needed to start painting some of my Lower Washburn Valley landscapes in my sketchbook. I feel I’m really getting to know the views of the valley through all my paintings. It is becoming very interesting how one view can be painted or drawn in so many different ways even just by myself.
I then covered my sketchbook in wallpaper and collected all my cuttings and organised them for another day.
As I organised them the remnants that were left behind reminded me of Matisse’s cut outs. So tomorrow’s experiment will be looking at his work and experimenting with the wallpaper in my portrait sketchbook.
When I opened my portrait sketchbook I immediately wanted to make a few pen portraits . My sketchbook is A3 so they are quite big and I should be able to take them much further than just a sketch. It will be interesting to see how I decide to paint them.
