Notes and Sketches | Sketch Away: Travels with my sketchbook


Notes and sketches go collectively in my sketchbooks. Typically, my thought of notes is so simple as this: simply a few phrases to notice what I sketch. This unfold is an exploration of the way to render water, and my references have been a bunch of images from completely different places.

Extra typically, I’ll document a dialog that goes with a sketch. Right here, I sketch Dan on the Farmers’ Market whereas he tells me about his household’s lengthy connection to corn rising.

“What does day appear to be?” I ask on the shave ice stall. The reply comes again shortly: “85 levels”.

Right here’s a sketch of Russ engaged on laying pavers within the yard, I quiz him on all of the fascinating instruments he makes use of. My favourite of the day is the “Paver Persuader”. You may see I not solely drew it in, I additionally made positive to label it in my sketch, so I bear in mind this fabulously-named instrument.

After which there’s the web page of random little drawings in my e book the place the sketch itself might not imply a lot however the notes do.

As I sit within the ready room whereas my daughter has her annual medical checkup, it strikes me that she’s been with Dr. Silverman since she was born and at her subsequent checkup, she’ll be an grownup! The place did the years go??
