Documentary Sketchbooks

I have always enjoyed being outdoors in all weathers and have built up a large collection of sketchbooks filled with drawings from out and about, and some filled with drawings made inside my house. I have a black cat, inappropriately named Sunny (he is as black as night!) and he makes lovely shapes against the patterned cushions, chairs and plants I have in the house, so I filled two sketchbooks with drawings of him! Sit still long enough and you might get drawn… However, whether you make it into a finished piece of work is a different matter, and often my sketchbook work just stays there and is never taken further. Still, who knows, maybe I will revisit it in years to come – I think it is like putting ideas in the bank and it is good to know I have a rich resource of ideas, should I ever choose to use them.
