The Sketchbook: No.1

I don't use a sketchbook. History. I never drew in the sketchbook for twenty years. I drew on sheets of Canson paper. I don't use a sketchbook much in the traditional way of 'sketching' from life - it is a notebook. The warm up. It has become the run up. Some images have been posted here before. But stick with it. From a quarter of the way in, a Jumbo 10 x 10 sketching pad cost £7.80.
