Sketchbooks are a place to gather, research, investigate and explore ideas. Inspired by John Coplans, the sketchbook page above contains a series of beautiful photographs investigating human skin, texture and form. These include different viewpoints, exploration of shadows and lighting conditions. If you are worrying that your sketchbook is not stunning or exciting enough, remember that it is the quality of your work that matters. Seek first to make quality art.
This is simplicity, you think...minimal use of colours, minimal use of brush strokes and up close it looks unimpressive, but stand back and look at it and you see the talent of the artist...Kyffin Williams
