Sketchbook project

Way back in October, I decided to take on a challenge (for me)- The Sketchbook Project. My interest in works on paper has been growing this year and I thought the deadline would be good for me.

The Brooklyn Art Library sent me a 5" x 7" sketchbook with 32 pages. Over the fall, I became obsessed with frames and circles and I wanted to continue with those ideas. Ultimately, I would like to make some large drawings. One day, I want to do a works on paper show.
I chose a monochromatic theme because I love to organize anything by color. The book starts with red and ends with violet- ROY G BIV. Some of the small drawings/paintings in the frames were recycled from the 100 drawings project and I also made some new works. I used fluid acrylics, pencil, pen, colored pencils, stenciling, and collage.

I had a really good time experimenting with new materials and hopefully this will make it into new work.
