This second group of pages is from more recent sketchbooks and again appear in roughly chronological order: A5 and A6 size. Many of the double page spreads have had to be cropped to fit when scanning.
I use the small A6 books a lot these days; they are an ideal size to slip easily into a pocket and can be used unobtrusively where necessary - chiefly in cafes! They have become constant companions and form a kind of visual diary; these drawings are often done for the sheer pleasure of doing them. I don't use the big books so much these days unless I am pretty sure I'm going to make use of the drawing in a landscape painting.
Drawing remains a constant source of joy for me. Long may it last.
