A few more pages from my Trip Prep Journal- not the most exciting pages but I am enjoying using a book for the planning - recording the journey beforehand.
I know you all think I am Little Miss Organised BUT somehow I didn't think to get my sketchbooks months in advance!!! Thankfully now I do have some but they are the second choice. Sadly Daler Rowney Ebony books have had a change in paper!!
Here are tests that I did with 4 pages- original DR(the best but no longer available!) and new DR(the worst!) then the two alternatives, Jasart (which I have 8 of now!) and Millini - which I wish I had 8 of!
I think the my brain does strange things when I am exhausted (like the urge to sketch baroque buildings) this particular day (late Friday night) I decided to do a more mathematical estimate of the number of sketchbooks to take. I just can't imagine that I could fill all those sketchbooks - who knows I might just get TIRED of sketching half way through the trip.... mmmm do you think that is possible? I don't! I am seriously concerned at the lack of 'chill out' days!
BTW I think I will stick with 8 not 9 (3.2kg worth of paper is enough surely!)
BTW2 - For those that will point out to me that I can always buy a sketchbook on the way- it doesn't help my weight management as the tighter baggage limits are on the 2nd half of the trip. I prefer to know that I have 3.2kg the whole way!
The Perpective issue again... - Musings further to sketching Lambton Rotunda - sketching it myself and instructing others during my travel sketching workshop last month for Newcastle Ar...
