Sketchbook
All sketches were made on location and painted with ink and watercolour... they aren't meant to be finished works, simply to capture the moment. They take me about 15 minutes each and i remember everything about the moment.
My sketchbooks aren't for sale but I am happy to reproduce the sketches as individual prints at a cost of £35 + p&p.
