In My Sketchbook

I admire the work of Amedeo Modigliani and I keep circling back to his portraits for inspiration. Portrait of Madame Reynouard and Maude Abrantes are by far my favorites. Check him out if you have a chance!

Enclosed is something I added in my sketchbook this evening. Care to share what's in your sketchbook?

Well...that was interesting...
I have THREE currently active Sketchbooks, but they are MOSTLY words, not interesting ones, just work related, and the images are of a similar nature!

Luckily, I have about 15 sketchbooks on the shelf there... so I scanned an old lifedrawing, from 2002! ack

The model was actually nude, I have notes in the margins, I was playing with the idea of translucent, form fitting material and added the body stocking.

A bit like Modigliani, I often take liberties with proportions. I have posted about this before. Especially when working with ink just jumping in. I think my first interest in this sort of style, was when I was introduced to "blind-contours" (drawing the "edges" while not looking at one's paper/drawing) and liking the results.

For this (and many others) I actually do look at the drawing, but I do not "fuss".

Very cool, Throbbs. I have a few sketchbooks laying around used for different purposes/mediums. I also still have sketchbooks from my teenage angst years --- those are always a treat to revisit! I can part from a lot of material things but not my sketchbooks, please!

I totally see Mondigliani in this sketch. I also see traces from a sketch that's likely behind this one? Love it!

I agree. Sketch books are quite precious.... (Gollum voice)
I enjoy revisiting mine.


Yes, The "ghost" is from the next page, I didn't put a slip sheet between when I scanned.

Hey there, I haven't sketched in my book for so long. I miss it actually. But this is a sketch I did several years ago. Keep in mind I'm no professional. Just doodling.

I like it. Very expressive, minimal drawing, not overworked. You should share more.
