Notepaper sketches

I had a go at putting sketches at the bottom of notepaper. The top one is based on a sketch in Claudia Nice´s Sketching Your Favourite Subjects in Pen and Ink.

Sketches in Golden Bay

Here are a few sketches I did in Golden Bay in my tiny hand-sized sketchbook, with a 0.05 technical pen (no pencil).

Pencarrow Head, Wellington Harbour

Sketches in St Arnaud

A sketch of Lake Rotoiti from the beach. I did most of the sketch there but finished off some of the shading back at the lodge. One of my first on-site pen sketches (no pencil), made possible by my son building sandcastles for long enough!
