Sketchbook Studies

Earlier this year my sister gave me a sketchbook of handmade, cotton watercolor paper made by the Amatruda Company, based in Amalfi, Italy. It’s roughly 6″x9″, has four deckle edges and takes a wash beautifully, although the surface falls apart if it gets reworked while wet. So I decided to use it for fast studies – wet washes only, to avoid detailing anything. Two hold-out roses from the sunny side of my home; our pumpkin before carving; and a rogue spaghetti squash from my garden.
