sketchbook peeks needed

Hi everyone!
After I posted my sketchbook it made me realize how much we painters love to peek. So I am sending out a challenge to everyone. You may take the peek-a-boo challenge in whichever way suits you.

The peek-a-boo:
Photograph 3 pages of your sketchbook. Choose pages that show the way you work. A peek into your mind. Write an explanation about how you use your book.
If you have a blog you can post your pages with an explanation (send me a copy to post parts.)I will link to your blog.
 If you don't have a blog, send me the pics and explanation. I will post for you
 Make sense? If I didn't explain it well, just ask.


All info is due by July 21st.

I have a pile of different sketchbooks, all for different purposes. One is strictly for drawing, sometimes it leads to a painting but most often not-- it's mostly to keep practicing how to see. I also have sketchbooks for thumbnails where I work out the main masses, values and composition--just like your notan. Those are always a mess! I also have sketchbooks with photos pasted in, and other bits of inpsiration about painting. I always work out all the details and problems first in my many sketchbooks, and then try to do my best drawing straight on my panels prior to painting.

Hi Loriann, looking forward to the nosey :o) I love looking at your sketches and seeing how the initial on site impressions develop into the paintings. Peek-a-boo Challenge - great name!

I made a separate page on my blog a while back to show sketchbook pages. The page has proved very popular going by the blogger stats.
