Min oldemor hæklede fine servietter - a sketchbook project


Starting a project in one of my homemade accordion sketchbooks.





The subject is my great grandmother's crocheted everyday items.

May first


Sketching while at work - opening day at the photo exhibition of some of our students, with rap- and bouffon performances, and open air grill, by more of the school's students. I took the opportunity to do a few sketches in the course of the day:





The weather is heating up enough for outdoor sketching, although a soup of birch pollen has been keeping me indoors as much as possible lately. I am hoping for a westerly wind and some sunny days.

Handmade

I made myself some simple accordion sketchbooks, hoping to re-start my daily drawing.




Additional health challenges have been keeping me pretty much out of action since late last summer, but I am crossing my fingers that art can find its way back into the space of my days soon.

These are simple accordion style sketchbooks, each made from one large sheet of Fabriano drawing paper. The covers are thick card stock (museumskarton) - the kind often used for passepartouts - which my daughter helped cut to size, and I just glued them on the end pages. I plan to use an elastic band to keep the sketchbooks shut in transit. Maybe I will also get around to decorating the covers and giving them a coat of varnish.

Now to locate my drawing mojo...
