Sketchbook Porn: Kimberly Trowbridge

Kimberly Trowbridge is at a residency in Portugal right now, soaking up (and painting) the last rays of summer sun. She's been painting figurative scenes for years, drawing on historical techniques of European masters, but she's also developed her own unique style of figurative fragmentation. Her subjects dissolve into loose lines and crystalline shapes that sometimes only hint at interleaving legs and arms and faces half-hidden in the shadows.

These are the contents of a folio of sketches from last year, photographed by Trowbridge and presented in the order they were made. She used mostly sharpie on paper, with some with graphite and colored pencil periodically thrown in. "These were all from morning warm-up sessions with my students in my studio from the model, which I was doing twice a week," she says.
