One thing I love about drawing so much is that I end up using a lot of art supplies that I've collected over the years. Today I found this small, skinny sketchbook in my studio and thought it would be perfect for landscapes. Its extreme horizontality and small size reins me in the way I need reining in. The toned paper is good for use with colored pencils, too.
I'm not yet used to the camera we bought to replace the one stolen in France. The battery evidently needed recharging---hope that means the top sketch and the one from the arboretum can be rephotographed with more clarity. If not, I'm getting a camera just like my old one. I thought it would be better to give you some idea of what I was doing, even if the images are a bit fuzzy, temporarily.
