My book for the 2014 Sketchbook Tour is on the way to Brooklyn, New York one day before the deadline of Jan 15th. I must confess that I had the book for over a year and just started to work on it last Monday. What can I say.
I am very pleased with how it turned out and even think I might have a few ideas for large paintings from this work.
My idea started with some of my favourite music and how to portray these songs. I decided that Sumi-e or Japanese ink paintings would be the best way to accomplish this and I am very happy with the concept.
I admit I was so happy with this sketchbook I wasn't quite ready to part with it, yes I sometimes get too attached to my work. This Tour will be coming to Toronto later this year so I will be able to visit with my book again. I did pay to have the book digitized so it will be online soon.
All and all a very satisfying experience so I will probably try this again.
I will post the link to the digital copy but in the meantime a sneak preview of the book.... The Music in my Life
