Re: Portrait VS scenery (sketchbook)
I enjoyed both your sketches. Please keep posting them. They brighten up the day. I like your idea of keeping notes on the sketches. I did it for a long time on paintings in my painting notebook. Now I take a picture of the painting, print it, make all the notes on that copy and put it my painting file. I still use the painting notebook for my design notes such as the proposed palette for the painting and what design to use, etc...
