Wrapping Up the Sketchbook

By in dogs, men, sketches, watercolour, women

One of my sketchbooks is almost full. So, I went through it, painted new pictures, and coloured old ones. That means a real grab-bag of images. Which are attractive? Which “work?” It’s interesting to figure out.

The things I like the most are the ones that help tell a story. That means comic “strips,” (none of which are here), and more coherent colour schemes (not so much here, either). Beleive it or not, this is encouraging. It’s always nice to try things out. If you’ve got a successful “formula,” then your work comes to a stop, and doesn’t develop. That’s like those successful childrens’ book authors who draw nothing but the same character for the rest of their careers. Are there such animals?
