Well here it is – Volume one of my big Long Service Leave Trip! (only 7 more to go!)
It represents the first 10 days (of my 80 days around the world) – time in Seattle with friends and then the Symposium

During my trip this was the least favourite of my sketchbooks. I think the main reason is because I wasn’t in control of what I sketched as much as I was for the rest of the trip (when with my friends in Seattle we were VERY busy and sometimes didn’t have the time to sketch what I would have liked(still managed something tho!) and at the symposium I was sketching things I might not normally choose to sketch.)

BUT since coming home, finishing off a few pages that I didn’t like, adding some notes and collage and generally re-living the excitement of the Symposium etc I have become a lot more attached to it. There are numerous stuck in pages – these don’t translate very well on issu. I did TRY the special USK moleskine but it wasn’t working for me, hence you will see that I cut the pages out of the book and stuck them in here.

    This is most excellent. Open air sketching is a frightening frontier for myself. All the power to you for doing such a good job.

    Thanks for the inspiration :)

    Thank you so much for sharing your art and experiences! I just returned from 3 weeks in Europe and barely had time to sketch. I love your style, and the quantity and quality of your work motivates me to make time for art.
