I found a little 6 inch square sketchbook, lurking at the bottom of a big A1 portfolio. Most are winter sketches, all plein air. I thought I'd share them ...

A misty day at Charlestown harbour. Cornwall. Ink and a white china graph pencil.

There's a mix of drawings, mixed media and small oil paintings in the book and it takes me back so much more than a photo does :). Some Cornwall and some Norfolk.

And that is why we sketch. It captures so much more than just a photo. Lovely.
