Always Thinking Marks

Yes, I am always filling sketchbooks

or scratching

and rubbing

Holding the pen with purpose or loosely uncontrolled

Mostly thinking repetition

and sometimes just creating a mess!
But that's okay
I consider a sketchbook a learning tool
not necessarily a thing of beauty.


  1. Not that you need much encouragement, but Turner's sketchbooks include some very scrappy looking work. It clearly did what he needed it to do...

  2. This looks like such a 'freeing' thing to do. Wonderful to be able to just let yourself go.

  3. There's such a subtle a beauty in process, however loose and 'messy' it appears. Love these. :o)


Thank you for taking the time to comment, your thoughts are most welcome.
