A tonal approach to painting, using oils or acrylics.
Travelling Sketchbook Workshop
Everything you need to know to master the art of keeping a sketchbook when you are out and about, or away from home.
A sketchbook is a very useful depository of fleeting impressions and notes recorded on the hoof. It is compact and the drawing tools are few and light. You will be amazed how much richer the impression of place or people is on your imagination when recorded in your own hand, rather than too easily snapped through a lens.
