My online courses are perfect if you find yourself too busy to attend classes and cannot find a suitable sketchbook class and you are happy to work around your own commitments It’s your sketchbook, you can use it however you are comfortable. Some of the most beautiful sketchbooks I’ve seen appear slightly chaotic but they are bursting with energy and personality. My process begins with pencil and paint I can fill one side of a sketchbook in one session or it might take several weeks. However, if I have an idea, I might choose colours that fit my theme or decide on dark and light areas throughout the book. Sketches and drawings They are suitable for new artists and those more experienced artists who want to learn new techniques. I first started making them after touring the world ? (Sydney, Barcelona, Carcassonne, Whitstable, York, Cambridge) with a one/two day workshop using concertina sketchbooks in a fun, freeing way. His book ‘The Creative License’ got me sketching, and his other books have helped to keep me going. He has a wonderfully loose style, using dip-pens, saturated colour inks etc.

I was eagerly trying to soak up all the great techniques and info that you are willing to share with us.” Bernadette You can trim any tape that hangs over the edges by folding it in half along the cut and trimming from the edge side with scissors. So many people use them, so many people love them. What is a concertina sketchbook and why do I love them so much? Concertina Sketchbooks – What Are They? I recommend that you start with Buildings or How Wild is my Garden so you can see the way I work. I continue to build on the techniques learnt in Allotments and Abstracts.

This is the fun bit. And I like to leave this until the end. This is because when I work into the sketchbook, I don’t always know how it will turn out. I also don’t know what I might find along the way to use as a cover. In this next step, you’ll need to measure your paper to cut three strips (in this case) at 18.5cm high. The strip takes the whole length of the paper. You will be left with a wee bit at the top that you won’t need. TIP: You know the old adage, measure twice, cut once? Not a bad rule to follow. We have recently expanded our range of concertina-style sketchbooks and felt it would be a good time to look at some of their features. Concertina sketchbooks invert the normal format of a sketchbook by giving artists one continuous working surface. Illustrator Peony Gent did some tests with one of our new Moleskine concertina sketchbooks to see how it handled.

Here it is after a three day walk along the Mendips, both sides of the paper concertina full of sketches (note how the covers are flipped in the photos). So pleased this online workshop has taken off. It’s really transformed my mindset to sketching’ Gillian My courses are self paced; you can complete them in your own time. It may be a binge for a day, or spread over weeks. You log on and off when you want to. There is no weekly timetable. Loved every moment. Karen is such a generous tutor – so informative and helpful. One very happy student – thank you. xx” Jude B

I decided to focus primarily on the properties of the paper, testing out a variety of mediums to see what suited best. I’ve been looking at Karen’s work for quite a while and wondering how she achieved the effects in her concertina sketchbooks, so when the opportunity to find out came up, I jumped at the chance. Cardboard cover set inside of folded and cut cover paper with double sided tape on cardboard for attaching the paper. Artway has been producing high-quality sketchbooks for over 20 years, and as creatives ourselves, we know the importance of quality materials. Whether you're producing rough sketches on the go, finishing detailed drawings, creating technical designs or experimenting with different materials like watercolours, pastels or marker pens a sketchbook is the starting point for many artists, so finding something that is reliable and suits your needs is crucial. It would definitely not stand up to heavy watercolour or even gouache usage, but it’s a good fit if you’re only painting with light amounts of water or in small sections.

Thank you! I have finally had a moment to go through the course. I teach sketching as well and LOVE your approach. I have told all my students about your work and could see having you come to Texas to teach at some point 🙂 Meanwhile, I am going to play with all the techniques that you showed us in this marvelous, user-friendly course. Can’t wait to sketch with you sometime–in the UK or here in the USA. Thanks again,This is my six week course that runs two times a year. If you are looking for a way to push your work forwards and find your own style, in a non-rigid way, with room to be independent and do your own thing, then this is the course for you. I scan the drawings on the scanner giving overlaps at the edges and then stitch the images together using an app on my smartphone, as I haven’t got a fancy editing programme like photoshop on the computer. Laborious but it works. There are so many different reasons to love a concertina sketchbook. Here are all the reasons I can think of, but if I have missed any, please let me know in the comments below:
