Some beautiful sketchbook art:
“Sometimes, the best things are right under your nose, or even in your own backyard.”
That’s a simple truth that Montreal artist Shari Blaukopf discovered when she got out her sketchbooks and set out to capture the snippets of her life in watercolour and ink – one drawing at a time.
Last fall, Blaukopf, a Beaconsfield resident and graphic design teacher at John Abbott and Vanier Colleges, started a sketchblog. It’s called The Sketchbook. Like other bloggers, she posts daily entries on her blog, chronicling the minutiae of her life and immediate surroundings. Unlike most of the tens of thousands of other bloggers out there, Blaukopf does so not just in words, but in whimsical and brightly coloured watercolour and ink drawings and paintings. Her posts are all sketched on location in a Moleskin sketchpad, sometimes finished up at home, and then scanned into her computer.
