    Love it! You immediately capture those lush golds of Italy.

  • This is just the beginning, previous knowledge helped.

    Great sketches and presentation – can’t wait to see more

  • Thanks Carole the real struggle is to turn the sketchbook into finished ideas, so I hope that you will see some results shortly. Glad you like the sketchbook.

    What I like is the life that is captures from reality – sometimes we cannot recreate that when we spend time on it – the snatched sketch is so real
    Look forwrad to more

  • Absolutely, Carole, when you add-up all the feelings felt when grabbing that moment, the heat , time of day, mosquitoes, smells, noise etc., there is a great sense of time and place that can’t easily be recreated in the studio.

    Love the one on the left especially Richard. Neat idea to put both sketchbook pages on RB. Very Bernard : )

  • I love sketchbooks the part for me is getting the good stuff out of them.
