    1. Thanks Christine! I’m afraid I haven’t been out sketching for a couple of months now so feeling a bit out of the groove at the moment. Funny, but today I found an old sketch book from 2014 – I’d forgotten all about it. Looking at it reminds me that really hasty sketches done in two minutes are worth it, no matter how scrappy – I’m inspiring myself!! Good luck with your blog – your work is great! Ronnie

    1. Hi Meg, I have several sketch books on the go – different shapes and sizes and always looking for different papers to try. I have several sizes of moleskin books – thick watercolour paper, then I use Daler Rowney 150gsm acid free cartridge paper books. Also, Seawhite A4 cartridge paper acid free. I am easily waylaid by new sketchbooks – happy sketching! Ronnie
