A New Series for ArtHouse Sketchbook Project 2011

Soar like a dandelion seed.

Art House CoOp – Sketchbook Project 2011 for the Brooklyn Art Library .  I let them select my theme and they sent me “Great Hopes and Massive Failures”.  But of course I had to tweak it and I will add, “Unshakable Determination” to the concept.  I used Prang Graphite, Cretacolor Pencil, General’s White Charcoal and Sharpie (the pen) on Moleskine thin, flimsy paper (the required format) with Prismacolor Workable Fixative.  I’m considering Grumbacher’s Tuffilm Final Fixative to lock it all together.  Not sure where I’m going with this, but hey, that’s half the fun.  The whole book will be on my Flicker feed (eventually)!

  1. well, hey, Donna! Good for you to post this on your blog! It’s wonderful and I am excited to see what happens. Unless of course you are moving on to the next Great Hope. What a fun theme….you get to consider both sides of the coin with your ideas and then decide which one they might be. Or both. Or……..
    Can’t wait to share our sketchbooks in the “real” next week! -D.
