A few more from the Sketchbook Project ...

Sketchbook project, number 37, oil pastel drawing.


Sketchbook project, number 32, line tracing over a photograph.

Sketchbook project, number 40, watercolour sketch. The chimney of the old forge

I no longer have any of these pieces, the Sketchbook was required to be sent to the USA and I won't be getting it back. But that's okay! I already have LOTS of artwork here in my house.
