The Old Church Ruins

Artist: Palma Rea, Italy
Artist’s Statement: In my sketchbooks there can be found bits of paper and cards, colourful sketches, portraits, architectural type drawings, and documentations of moments and events. Rarely do I instantly like the paper in a sketchbook . My rule is that you must first get to know its limits and then make friends with it. Working in two or three sketchbooks at a time keeps my creativity flowing but each book is kept for either drawing in a certain style, paper type or for working with a specific medium. I will often combine various techniques, tools, colours and styles in just one drawing. Rarely do I work with themes as I find that working constantly in the same style or drawing the same subjects gets boring for me and also for the viewer. My sketchbooks and pens can be found on my sofa, on the bookshelves, on the coffee table, on the kitchen table, by my bed, in my bag and there is even one in my car. I have not lost one yet!
