Shhhhhh Baby Girl's asleep.
there is a discussion on the City & Guilds Yahoo group re sketchbooks/journals and how people use them. I love this part of City & Guilds and its been a real revelation that I can actually put together a sketchbook (or workbook as I prefer to call it) and refer back to it for inspiration months later.
for each assessment piece I took an A4 ring bound sketchbook and pulled it apart. Then stuck it all back together with fabric, stitching and fibres. I also added a few drawings too.
Some work better than others as a record of the final finished piece (sky sea and sand), others stand alone as resource of techniques (green fields throw) and one in particular is far more interesting than the finished piece (black and white accessory).
My self portrait workbook is a work in progress....
I hope I can carry this on without C&G but I think I will need a topic/subject/end goal to work with!
I've uploaded some more photos of my sky, sea and shingle workbook to Flickr. I really enjoyed looking through this book again. And I'm surprised at how much black and white stuff I did, way back in 2004.
I'll photograph the other books when I get a chance.
Some of my favourite pages...
