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 a really well thought out loft conversion project. We love the simple folded steel shading device around the dormer windows and how the architect has used matching roof tiles to seamlessly integrate the new addition with the existing roof. The stand-out feature of this design, however, is that window that folds up and over to become a skylight, bringing both a view of the trees beyond and the sky above into the bedroom space.
