Last weekend I had the chance to meet educators and artists at BINDERS ARTFOLIO EVENT. On Friday,  I shared the work in my STILLMAN & BIRN MULTIMEDIA SKETCHBOOKS. Still managed to get a rapid sketch done while the catering crew began setting up for the evening. MUSHROOM CAPS were outstanding. Getting a chance to meet so many creatives was a real treat.

On Saturday, BINDERS had a store event where there were workshops and demos. This gal is a bit foggy in the morning  and this sketch proves she was in good company. An early riser does not always equal a morning person: I need a hour of mentally swimming through pudding before I can really start the day.

One of the things I like about the STILLMAN & BIRN journals is that the paper is drawing friendly and paint worthy. Usually papers do not have both these qualities in balance. The demonstration showed the use of wet and dry techniques, alternating painting with drawing to create a full image. I used Caran D’Ache Neocolor II wax pastels and Supracolor watercolor pencils to experiment with line and wash.

The outstanding MISTER DON COLLEY was present with his amazing sketchbooks. You owe yourself a trip to his website to see ” how drawing is done.” You can catch wind of his travels HERE.
