Drawings and Sketchbooks

Drawings and sketches often form the basis for later paintings.  Other times they are finished works on their own or a means for slow looking and observation.  Sketchbooks become compendiums of careful study, experimentation and discovery.  These images are samples of garden notes, sketch outings with colleagues and other observations.

In a recent lecture at the Department of Landscape Architecture at Rutgers University, New Jersey, I spoke about the design inspiration that you can find in drawings, sketching and painting.  You can see exerpts from this presentation.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW
