Autumn Experimentation

Before we get to the new year which, surprisingly is less than two weeks away, I want to share a few of my sketchbook experiments from the fall. 

Back when I started this journal in September I added a few fold out pages here and there. This is my first from September 8th. (I usually date my pages but I missed this one.)

I went to a local farm with a few artist friends and as they spread out to paint the rolling landscape I chose to capture the barn. The silo would fit perfectly on the left fold up once the page was expanded. 

I positioned myself so the truck would be hidden when the page was closed.

I added some fancy lettering and continued the grass across the base to complete the page. 

Page size and shape presents different challenges to my sense of composition. I have a few other fold out experiments to share so stay tuned!
