The Sketchbook Project - First Entry


SBP-1
Originally uploaded by Anita Davies

So, this is it...The first of my pages for the Art House Sketchbook Project 2010

My Theme is 'Anita Davies' (that's me!) and I figured a self portrait was as good as any place to start this journey!

I've used the folded tab on the right for text, to read the text click on the image to enlarge it.

Created using Noodlers Bullet Proof Black ink in a Lamy Safari fountain pen with an EF nib, watercolour and a red Micron 05 pen.

Thank you Skizo

Love it, Anita! A bit serious, it's true, but I like the gesture that shows an expectant invitation into your world ;)

Great!

E-J said...

Yowza! Yep, a touch serious but you have captured yourself stunningly well! This is the best portrait of you I've seen anywhere. :)

How, grand Anita. I just received my book for the project and I know a lot of other people involved to in Sketch book Project.
Love this sketch. Just a little more sparkle in the eyes please.

Of course I love the Noodler's Ink. You made me feel grand that I had purchased a Lamy Safari EF nib. I await my black nib pen. Hope it arrives today.

Going to share your blog site with friends also doing the sketchbook project. I will certainly, visit Brooklyn Library and find your Journal in the future and sit down and give you a full run down after I have in my hands. To touch the paper.

I am a Book Person!

I love this- I got my sketchbook a couple of weeks ago... looking forward to seeing more of your pages. Did you make the page first, then will add to your book when you get it?
