Europe 09 Sketchbooks

Here it is - all my sketches in the one posts from my 5 week trip to Europe in Sept/Oct 09 (there are a few pages in each volume missing due for privacy reasons)
Hopefully you will have fast enough internet connection to view them - let me know if better to be separate posts....

  6. I'm in awe! Just fabulous! I'll have to read it when I have more time. How wonderful to share the experience with us. I kept wondering where's the bear..... checked back into the blog and was happy to see him there! When you say a "quick sketch" what is the range in time for the (truely amazing) architectual drawings? Just like to know what is possible so I can push myself to sketch so quickly!
    Continued success

  12. thanks everyone! It is so nice that I share my books as if I just handed them to you (almost!)
    @Lyn - I think that most of these sketches took about 20-30 minutes each. Except for Paris where Eza and I normally were at one spot for an hour - though I often got to draw a second or third. I normally just do enough pencil line setup to know that it fit the page and the bays/spacings of the building are ok - I then just go for it with ink.

  13. Awesome and what everyone has said. These are so much better than photographs and they will be great memories. What a keepsake. Like you made your own travel catalog. Loved the sketches, and you even drew in the little maps to show where you were traveling. Loved your commentary, too. What a great idea this Issuu.

  17. I love your sketches and look often at your blog and flickr entries. It's a wonderful idea to collate your recent travel sketches into one place and I am off now to buy a copy of your book
    from Blurb so I can enjoy it in the garden with a cup of tea when Spring eventually arrives
