This week a new book I had ordered arrived based on Richard Diebenkorn's sketch books. I have long admired Diebenkorn's semi -abstract and abstract large landscapes and  figure drawings. The sketchbooks are mainly figure drawings. Diebenkorn work has recently been shown in an exhibition along with Matisse who he admired greatly. Diebenkorn was a well known American artist painting in post war USA based in the San Francisco area

The following sketches are based on some of the drawings in the book.
