Sketches

Sketching while traveling is a great way to spend time in a place, meet local people and record your experience. My sketches are mostly made on loose sheets of water colour paper or in bound sketch journals. My sketches are generally not for sale but I am open to carrying out commissions of this type of work if anyone is interested.

This selection of sketches is based on photographs that I have taken in many regions of China over numerous years. The sketches are extracts from an illustrated journal I was commissioned to make in 2020 for a friend who had also spent much time in China.

In 2019, I spent 3 months in Tokyo while my wife worked in one of Tokyo's universities. These watercolor and ink sketches were made during that period.
