Sketchbook Saturday

(click pictures to enlarge image)

I have two sketchbooks-- one is primarily reserved for drawing, the other is mostly for painting ideas, notes and such. The drawing sketchbook has better paper than the other, the note book has more pages.

I split into two books because I noticed that I rarely look at older books, and what's the point of making notes for painting ideas if you never look at them? The note taking book takes longer to finish than the drawing book, so I'll be carrying the ideas around longer, making it more likely that I'll get around to exploring some of ideas inside.

Like the drawing sketchbook, I use the notebook for "homework"-- in this case I've posted some notes I made on some Duane Keiser paintings he did this summer in Maine. I bought the painting in the second set of pages.
