I recently secured a three year art residency at Askham Village Community, a care and rehabilitation centre. My first day was mostly spent on introductions and paperwork but I took a quick moment to grab a sketch of the construction area outside.
They are in the process of expanding the village further, I felt this new beginning reflected my own new beginning at Askham and would be a great opening page to *my first sketchbook there.
*I'm using a Seawhite concertina sketchbook so I can exhibit the work I do in it with ease.
I'll be using a Watercolour Moleskine Folio, for longer studies, on just one side of the paper, so they can be framed if required.
