This year I have tried to draw and paint as often as I can in my sketchbook. I use an A5 sized spiral bound sketchbook so that I can remove the pages by snipping between the spirals. This enables me to prepare several pages at once by applying a rough background using some inks or paints before drawing. I also decided to concentrate on the subject of still life to improve my observation skills and this enables me to make the most of the time I have available. Some pages from my sketchbook are below.
