Packing my bag for tomorrow's garden sketchabout.
Earlier in the week....
Thursday night...random trees
I have a dedicated garden sketchbook which I have been using in preparation for upcoming Garden Sketchabouts
I wasn't sure what to do for the title page - somehow I wanted to include the logo and my sketching tools (keeping up my usual tradition).

In response to Alissa’s comment on flickr on my previous sketch – here are the same people (plus a few more) sketched in my ‘usual’ style(ink only) of foreground people when I sketch a building. I started doing this when in Paris in 2009 when I couldn’t see the base of the buildings because of all those annoying tourists!
I do love doing those loose sketches but I just wish I could make them more realistic.... Practice pratcice!
