These are a couple of pages from my sketchbook. This is where it all begins. As you can see there is a little more detail in these but the basic compositions derive here. Unfortunately at this time of year I don't get out there much, weather permitting, however there is something quite satisfying about rain splodged pages. I have hundreds of these sketches which I am considering getting mounted up for sale so watch this space. I definitely prefer them raw without colour but the colour can remind me what time of year I was there.
