Themed Sketchbooks

Sketching can be even more fun if using a themed sketchbook. These can be made or decorated in any way you wish. You are only limited by your imagination.

My recent article in Artist's Back to Basics' has just been published with hints, tips and information on how to make your own sketchbook.

There are also many excellent articles in this edition #6_1.  I usually do an article for every issue and have been doing this since the magazine's inception. It is sometimes a challenge to come up with something new and different and it is great to expand the imagination with various techniques, subjects and ideas to share.

Sketches through Europe

Had a recent trip to Europe when I combined work with pleasure, and did some sketching along the Rhine and Danube Rivers in Europe, predominantly in Germany.

Just sharing these with you. Once I returned home there was so much work to do that all thoughts of more sketching were quickly forgotten.

I spent five days in and around Prague which I loved and took many, many wonderful photos. Definitely want to do a series of building sketches as architecture is one of my loves.

The sketch captions are self explanatory.

Just getting ready to leave for Siem Reap, where I am taking a group to Cambodia for a week, sketching Ankor Wat and many other places. Then on to Hoi An for a week of very different culture and scenery.
