Mill Road, June 2021

Another month took me further down Mill Road, over the bridge. I’ll put all these together into one book once I got to the end, but I need to re-photograph some of the May ones first.

Mill Road, May 2021

This month I bought a new, landscape sketchbook and started working my way down Mill Road, starting from the pub called The Brook, which is actually on Brookfields. Here are the first pages.

March 2021 Sketchbook

Here is the March sketchbook

On Size

The #OneWeek100People sketches from March have their own book. My daughter’s school is making a cookbook for which I made illustrations. Those aren’t included here; they have their own post.

Also this month I started Liz Stee’ls Watercolour Course. Most of that is excluded from this book, though the two annotated studies of Scottish hills on page 16-17 are from that.

All in all its a shorter sketchbook than some recent months.

On Quality

My new A4 hard-back sketchbook is slightly too big to fit into the “A4” scanner. The pages would fit but the cover doesn’t which pulls the spine up and makes the pages blur towards the edge. So I have been experimenting with photographing these pages. The results are a bit hit and miss.
