More faces - just a selection from my daily sketch series. I have three sketch books on the go at the moment. One is a small visual diary of my days here in Brighton. The second is more traditional: where I play with new ideas and concepts and the third, continues with the faces. Because I work with three sketchbooks, the daily obsession with faces has become somewhat diffused., allowing different ideas to creep in. Here is a sampling from September's faces. For other sketchbook sampplings - check my instagram - @ameree. (there may be a few pictures of my dog in there too - can't help myself.)
Collage. Where did this come from? Cutting, pasting, glue. Draw on top, ink, paint, more cutting, more glue -- something else to fill the pages of one of the three sketchbooks. Fun, rudimentary and spontaneous.
Continuing the mapping plan - this time going into a little more detail. Tomorrow - the paint!
The initial sketch for a larger neighbourhood inspired piece. The final work will be 36x36" and will focus on the east end of Toronto. In no way is this sketch accurate in either scale or actual streets. (working from memory here) But by getting it down just in this rudimentary way, I can move forward. In fact, I spent most of the day plotting out the board and editing photos that will eventually become part of the finished piece.
Resolutions are not the easiest to keep, but the task is easier when it's something you enjoy. As part of the ongoing process of painting. I plan to post here images from the pages of my notebooks.
