At its essence, a student sketchbook should emulate that of a practising artist. With photographs providing evidence of first-hand research, quick confident gestural drawings showing a response to this environment, and scrawled annotation, this beautiful sketchbook page – showing the development of ideas for a sculpture entitled ‘Stone Egg’ – does exactly that.
Mixed media sketchbook pages explore a wide range of tactile surfaces and structures. The properties of threads and fabric are investigated thoroughly, using a range of mediums and techniques, resulting in rich, exciting pages. Small, tidy annotation surrounds the pieces, providing thorough analysis without causing distraction from the work itself. - See more at: http://www.studentartguide.com/articles/fashion-design-sketchbooks#sthash.7Fzuot6D.dpuf
