Greg Becker's personal visual record of the triumphs and trials of an artist, illustrator and vegetable gardener.
Seriously lovely work - thanks for sharing!
thats very generous of you Caro, I'm glad you like them.
I find sketch books very interesting...sometimes more than completed single works. I suppose that's why they are so important when you apply for art college - or when you become really famous and they are displayed behind glass :) I like the one of the lonely pollarded willow? and the two figures behind the hedge.
Yes the half finished thing in sketchbooks can be very enticing, especially when the unfinished study sits interestingly on the page like its still in dialogue with the paper (eg Turner's sketchbooks). The other fascinating thing is how notes and drawings scribbled down without any design intention sometimes seem to gel together quite by accident (Delacroix's algerian sketchbooks). Glad you like the drawings, all drawn from memory, mostly of ferring in west sussex.
I think those are a great way to "see" inside the mind. You are so talented. Those sketchbooks will be an awesome thing to pass downto your kids.
Thats a nice thought Sue, my kids certainly will not be short of artwork in their inheritance, especially as my other half is also an artist but they may need an extra property to store it all!
