albireo Sketchbook, bits of watercolour studies

Happy New Year everyone! Late but never too late...its still January.

Thought I'd post some of these unfinished drawings/studies from 2008.

Those who know me know that I am a sketchbook junkie..well maybe not junkie..but I remember someone telling me 'everytime i see you in lifedrawing, you are like using a dif'..i guess it suits me well...

Anyways, there are quite a few different kinds of sketchbooks i've bought last year and they are still empty..looking forward to try some of these and fill them up this year.

Finally started this 'albireo' sketchbook i got while I was in Japan in May 2008. So far so good, its a great sketchbook as you can peel out the pages easily, so if you don't like a piece, it is easily removable :)

These are mostly life studies etc, the first is a 30min to 40 min i acrylic, the 2nd one are 20-25 mins watercolour, and the nude is 20 mins i think, i remember painting frantically to finish that one. hehe

New year resolutions:
-paint paint paint and draw
-finish some good illustrations with meaningful concepts
-continue to learn cooking, maybe make some good quality stuff by end of the year..haha
-continue workout, keeping motivated
-finish reading these books i have in mind...

...I guess thats all for now, lets see if they will stick.
