This weekend my friend Mat who was previously my watercolor instructor held an open house to his new studio and gallery downtown Chicago. Mat does beautiful watercolor work, by far I am one of the luckiest to have had him for an instructor. Everyday Mat would bring his sketchbook to class and share his ideas and sketches with us, and ever since, I've been wanting a sketchbook like his. It's just a great book for sketching with pens, pencils, and best of all, it can handle watercolor. A beautiful book. This last summer Mat went back to his motherland (England) and while he was there he picked up a few of these priceless sketchbooks to bring back home to the states. Lets just say he has become my sketchbook dealer, I'm hooked. Anyways, here's my first sketch in my "Mat Barber Kennedy" sketchbook, I did this one last night while watching a movie with my wife. Daniel Craig, the new Bond.
