Sketchbook Project 2014

I entered The Sketchbook Project again this year. I knew what I wanted to do for a while, but typically I didn’t pull the finger out until two weeks before the deadline.  Last year I drew part of Wexford Main Street, the year before I wrote a wee story about feeling lost.  This year I drew most of the places I have lived in, with a commentary on what I remember about living there.

I drew the floor plans on layout paper and layered them in the order the floors go in, so there are hints of the floor below visible, as can be seen in the scan directly above.  I kept the colours to  a minimum, just a little greenery in the gardens or a highlight somewhere else.

Essentially, this is a project about Home.

(Something that I planned on putting into the sketchbook but ran out of space for was this juicy map (always a map). I clicked a few years ago that two places I’ve lived in are built on the former site of a Female Orphanage. Odd little coincidence.)
