Back to my travel sketches after a long break! These sketches are my art life blood! If there's anything that keeps me in good form and shape when I paint-it's down to these sketches!
"Every place, or situation, that you sketch has to be carefully observed for you to recreate it as a sketch. Therefore every sketch you do is increasing your knowledge and experience as a painter. I cannot stress enough the importance of sketching for all amateur painters, at whatever level. Try to make a habit of sketching as much as possible, both for your own enjoyment and to add to your painting "repertoire".-Sketching with Alwyn Crawshaw
