old sketchbook (90s). I came across this video in an old paperbox .I made
this video in 1998 to use for my homepage.era this was to achieve as low
and small a resolution as possible. It could be made visible after 2 minutes.
It became an rm extension for the Realplayer. So video on the Internet in
the last century was possible. I have thrown it through my computer once
again with this result. They are sketches made in the nineties for model
drawing, during my lessons at school, in the open air, on holidays and in
all possible places. I always had this sketchbook and some pencils with
me in a small bag. As soon as there was time and opportunity I drew my sketchbook
and my pencils to sketch. Why do I do this 20 years later, much less?
pencil, ink and crayon drawings
object an artist may have, is his sketching book. Besides sketching models
as study for my paintings I do it for the pleasure in drawing. Working in
a studio can be boring. Especially when the painting on the easel can be
too difficult to succeed. For the moment you need to do something else than
painting, to overcome the stress. Sometimes other obligations than art can
be the problem. For that instances I always have my book and my pencil with
me for that few minutes that suddenly occur. Wham.. Draw without thinking!
May be the happiest moments in an artist's life.
These sketches are what they are; Wonderful scratched gems, far from perfect, but precious to have and to realize on bad moments.
