So I bought a new sketchbook, and my intentions are to fill it with sketches of my nearby town, Stavanger. I love sketching, but I rarely sketch buildings and I feel like I really haven't figured out how to draw water yet, so I'm hoping I'll improve on the next 90-something pages! Thought I'd share a couple of my sketches so far. In order of appearance: Stavanger Bybru, the cathedral, and a scene from old Stavanger in progress. I'm think I'm looking forward to drawing old Stavanger in particular, I love all those tiny white houses and cobbled streets full of flower pots.
The sketchbook I'm using is a softback moleskin I bought in Copenhagen airport last time I was travelling (I seem to have a tendency to buy notebooks while travelling?). The pages are a little thinner than what I'm used to, so I'll only be filling one side of them with sketches. I was a bit annoyed at that at first, but I guess that will basically mean I'll only need to sketch half as many pictures as I originally thought, so maybe a blessing in disguise?
I have a friend visiting for the weekend (and once she leaves my father-in-law will be visiting for a week, exciting!), and am hosting brunch this morning so should probably get back to that! Hope you have a good weekend too!
