See inside my Current Sketchbooks

Have a look inside my current sketchbook books. I’ve got a few on the go. Some I prefer using some days and sometimes I just want something small to slip in my pocket and be discreet with.

I’ve been very busy recently, out and about, here and there, so it’s all a bit messy but shows what is filling my mind at the moment.

A Morning Sketching in Hereford – Sketchbook Tour

I had to take my car to the county town of Hereford, for a service. That meant I had the whole morning to spend wandering around sketching. What a great idea. First I went to the museum, which has quite a lot on display about the agricultural heritage of the county,

The Hereford is famous for cider and beef – the Hereford beef cattle breed being famous around the world. I found references to hereford Bulls all over the place – not so much the cider though – perhaps I wasn’t looking hard enough.

Here are the sketches I made in a morning off from drawing for work – I must be a glutton for punishment!

You can find my friends Andy’s best-selling crime fiction books here in the UK – here in the USA – and here in Canada.

I went to the USA for the last couple of weeks in September. I call it a holiday you may call it a vacation. We went to New York for a few days then to a wedding outside Boston – then we had a few days on Cape Cod with wind and rain, thanks to Hurricane Jose!

I had done so much drawing for books I was working on before I left, I didn’t do a lot of drawing while I was away – It was, after all, a holiday!

Have a look at what I did and see a few of the many sights I saw while I was away.
