I write articles for Back to Basics art magazine for each issue. It is now a bi-monthly magazine and has articles to appeal to all skill levels and all mediums and techniques. My recent articles appear in Issue 5_4 and are related to travel sketching.
The first article is How to Sketch Water. It is very comprehensive with lots of sketches and photos, as well as a step by step demonstration.

The second article in the magazine is Greens in the Landscape. This is a valuable article not only for sketching, but for the valuable information of various greens that are around us, either at home or away.

Wherever you are you can carry a small sketchbook and basic equipment to quickly sketch the enviroment. I also take groups travel sketching to various areas both in Australia and overseas. It is so much easier to sketch with a group and lots more fun!
