Holiday travel diary


I had a little summer trip around Europe, here are some pages from my travel sketchbook. I haven't used coloured pencils much so it was good to try a new medium, want to do more with them and gouache together.

Girl on the street


Sometimes I see people on the street who I really want to paint, but then have to wait a few hours/days before I get the chance. I saw this lady the other day on K rd and have been keeping her in my memory bank until today when I could put her on paper.
