From my sketchbook... everyday drawings

by Jo Reimer

I'm reaching the end of a sketchbook and decided to show you some of the pages. I gutted a small 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" Moleskine and replaced the paper I don't like with Fabriano Artistico 90# watercolor paper. This results in fewer pages but the paper is more pleasing.

I love to draw and the more I draw the better I get at it. I'll continue to improve but that doesn't matter to me as much as getting images on paper in order to glue the day into my memory bank. When I look at each page I remember where I was, who was with me, even what the day felt like. That's what's important to me about a drawing practice.

No, I don't manage to draw every day although that's my intention. I simply haven't committed to the practice, no matter what I tell myself.

  1. What a treat to peek inside your sketchbook :)

    1. I'm glad you think so. I wondered if anyone would really be interested.


I appreciate comments and questions.
