Sketches from our travels

Like I said in my previous post, I'm adding some sketches in this post of our trip away...but

Firstly one or two sketches from our trip to Birdlip in Gloucester.  I've already added some in my blog post dated 24th January here are some that escaped that blog post...

using a large moleskine journal I started with the map ...











 ....notes on the journey



























We have just come back from another trip down to Buckfastleigh.  Great opportunity to sketch in a different town, and start another journal page with the map...



sketched from the car (it was warm in the car and cold outside, you get the idea)...



Looking forward to other trips away 
and more sketching!

    1. Thanks Debbie, yes that does happen, more so than photographs even. I think it's because you paint the 'feeling' of the scene and that plants it in our memories :-)
