A very simple pen & ink palm tree ‘doodle’ was the start of this “Thumbnail Sketch”.

These two small faces found their home as a “Thumbnail Sketch”. It wasn’t until I worked them into the thumbnail format that I decided on the ‘watching the movie’ narrative.

There have been a couple of subjects whereas I had a finished drawing and years afterward converted the main subject to a “Thumbnail Sketch” format. The ‘stone man’ is one of those subjects.

A reminder, the ‘Box’ with the “Thumbnail Sketches” are only 2 1/4” (56mm) square.

This 30 year old ‘doodle’ finally found it’s home, with some slight modifications, in this “Thumbnail Sketch” format.

 

The original is in private collection.

“The Thumbnail Sketches”-Number Three

“The Thumbnail Sketches”

Number Three

 

This “Thumbnail Sketch” is one of two thumbnail drawings I did of the same subject.

The Thumbnail drawings are set up as six boxes/thumbnail templates on a 9 x 12 inch paper to accommodate the digital scanning process for prints. I had completed this Thumbnail drawing but had not completed the entire sheet, much less had them digitally scanned. A dilemma occurred when I wanted to give this drawing, as a gift, to a close friend but couldn’t, at the time, separate it from the uncompleted sheet of six thumbnails.

I decided to create a stand-alone duplicate Thumbnail drawing, albeit with slight shape and color variations, as the gift.

Both originals are now in private collections.

There have been a few “Thumbnail Sketch” subjects that have, over time, managed to find their way to a larger modified ‘finished’ drawing. This is one of those Thumbnail sketches.

The outlined box is 2 1/4” (56mm) square. The thumb outline measures 2” (51mm) from the bottom border to the tip of the thumb.

“The Thumbnail Sketches” Number One

Way, way, back when, I had a small simple sketch (doodle) of a face that I liked. Every time I reviewed my earlier sketch’s, I saw this “face” and as much as I liked it, I couldn’t seem to develop it into a finished drawing.

Over time, I also noticed that I started to accumulate other small subject’s in the sketchbooks that never found a home as a finished drawing.

During my tenure as an art teacher, I created a ditto, called a “Thumbnail Sketch Sheet” (with a drawing of a thumb to one side of the title and a nail to the other side). Beneath were four outlined squares for my students to create four different ideas for the current art lesson. One of which would be used for their final composition. The other three were tucked away in their file folder, also never to find a home.

After years of an ‘on again/off again’ mission to find a home for these doodles, there came an evening, four years ago, when I remembered the Thumbnail sketch sheet and wa-la, an idea, I traced my thumb for a pattern and found a home for my “misfit” doodles.

The outlined box surrounding the thumb is 2 1/4” (56mm) square. The thumb outline is enlarged from my original thumb size to accommodate a small drawing, but it still only measures 2” (51mm) from the bottom border to the tip of the thumb.

While these postings of the “Thumbnail Sketches” will not be in any chronological order, this first post is that initial “face” sketch that started me on this road.
