Watercolor on tea bags ~ Tea bags were torn open glued to watercolor paper. Paper had been stamped beforehand with text, then designs were sketched painted over the tea bags along with the dragonfly stamp. . . . . ღTrish W ~ http://www.pinterest.com/trishw/ . . . . #art #journal
Many high school Painting / Fine Art students worry that their sketchbooks must be wild, gestural explorations, with layers of media exploding from each page. This sketchbook is a reminder that this is not always the case. Here, a sketchbook layout has been approached with the sophisticated eye of a graphic designer; each page taking on the aesthetic of a contemporary magazine.
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, these sketchbook pages – showing the development of ideas for a sculpture entitled ‘Stone Egg’ – do that.
