Take a peek inside my Norway Cruise Sketchbook

Take a sneek peek inside my sketchbook!

I recently went on a cruise to the Arctic circle to see the northern lights. Mrs Rayner and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. I did a bit of random sketchbooking and thought you might like to see.

Sketchbook journals are 50% sketching and 50% memories and stories. Don’t get too hung up on your drawing skills – just draw to remember the good times and the interesting stuff!

With the recent changes on YouTube, I will be doing a lot more of this and a lot more sketch booking altogether. Let me know what you think and what you would like to see me work on.

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.

See inside my USA Sketchbook

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.
