New Sketchbookies

Finally getting away for a few days but I didn't want to leave all my pals empty handed. Here are a few sketchbook spreads to hold you over. I expect a lot of comments and several job offers when I get back.

great - I love glimpsing in the sketchbooks of my favourite artists! :) I like the first and the last double page the most. especially the bunny on the first and the blue on red creatures on the last double spread page :) keep it up.

Hello, I have a question, when you paint on a copper plate how do you prepare the surface? I enjoy looking in your sketchbooks. Thank you! Bye

the easiest way is to give the copper a light sanding and spray with auto primer, sand and give it a few layers of gesso. having said that i don't do it that way. i build up many layers of gesso and matte medium brushing in different directions until i have finally dispensed with the matte medium and am only using partially watered down gesso. i sand with very fine grit, 300 and 600, between every 5 layers or so. being careful and patient is the key.
