The Art House Co-op is featuring the Sketchbook Project Limited Edition , a collaborative series of art books created by 5000 artists around the world. (arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookprojectlimited)

The theme of my sketchbook is “Seasons in my Garden”. I thought some of you might be interested in seeing my sketchbook project.

The sketchbooks will be kept at the Brooklyn Art Library NY where people can go and look at them. I have the original paintings and sketches and made copies so my sketchbook will be more durable for folks to handle. Last year I did another Sketchbook Project called "Forks and "Spoons" which featured some memorable meals had on my trips to Italy and Paris. It is currently touring the US.

I like your style, I can't do loose like that but I admire it tremendously, I find I have to be more controlled however I go about it....

Thank you all very much for your kind comments. I am a retired art teacher who now has time to develop my own creativity in watercolours and in the garden. Most of these works are only small, 5 x7 , which give me the chance to explore the possibilities , and are a good size for making into cards.

Wow Nancy.....I have to tell you...I found this as a result of looking at your Iris photos and thinking that you 'must' be an artist.....and yes, you really are! I absolutely love your sketchbook, really love it! Have you got that website going yet? ;)

In my favourites!

In my faves too now . . . and can't wait to try painting an Iris!

8 Feb, 2013

 

I painted an Iris for my A level Sticki...it was the best bit of work I've ever done!

8 Feb, 2013

 

I think you mean "Sheila" Karen . . . my avatar and Sticki's are probably too similar! I painted an Iris years ago and was quite pleased with it, but gave it to my boss when I left work :(

8 Feb, 2013

 

Lol...so sorry Sheila...they are similar aren't they! :)

8 Feb, 2013

 

It's OK, I knew who you meant :) Maybe I'll change mine one day soon - when I can remember how . . . :))
