When I met the local Urban Sketchers group I bought a new sketchbook (Bee Paper Super Deluxe) 12 x 9 in. - 93 lbs (150 gm) - 60 pages.
I'm hoping the paper is heavy enough that I can add some light watercolor washes to my sketches. I'm still working with pencil so far.

Here are my first few attempts.

St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA

Those are wonderful sketches, Philip! You got all the detail needed for a viewer to really 'see' the scene! This is going to be a most treasured trip diary for you, and for you to show your friends. :thumbsup:

Yes, I have one of the Bee Super Deluxe books; they handle a wash just fine! For that reason, I grabbed a larger version as well. I love wet and dry media!
Have a great sailing season!
