Morning sketch and dinner sketching… Oh! It is nice to be using real watercolour paper for a change BUT it is a challenge to get used to the smaller size page as you can see here! Crowded page…and as often happens I draw the entrée too large. Great Thai meal with my parents to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary! Lovely evening and strangely the density of the page (it is all a bit too much) symbolises how I feel after eating more than I should, or am used to!!!
After the previous crowded spread, I opted for a more open composition. It does seem a waste to have a page of this nice watercolour paper without watercolour on it (or a sketch of any kind) but text is important in my sketchbooks so I just have to live with that! I am sure it will only take me a few days to get used to this format…but it is a bit of a shock to go from an A4 size book (rather than my usual A5 size) to this!
