Our local urban sketching group has decided to participate in this project (see details here: www.sketchbookproject.com)
A sketchbook has been purchased and we have until the end of March 2018 to complete and return it to the Brooklyn Library, NY. The book measures 5” x 7” and contains 16 pages (i.e. 32 sides), this will be passed around the group with each participant using 2 or 3 sides.
The paper is rather thin so care is needed if using watermedia – an alternative is for contributors to supply their sketches on separate paper which can then be glued into the book.
I wanted to include something particularly relevant to our locality, so decided to use the information and a couple of images I gathered when putting together my booklet on the fritillary nature reserve. My third was a pencil portrait with added collage.
