I’ve been trying to get my schedule back on track and decided to give myself two mornings a week to go sketch outdoors because A: it gets me out the house and B:I can get reference and practice that you can’t get sat at a computer all day. I’ve been doing it on and off for a year now and it took me a few trials and errors to find the right spots in town from which I had a good view but wasn’t obvious to the passers-by outside.

 I tried out this brown recycled paper sketchbook after having it on my shelve for past 3yrs not knowing what to do with it as I saw Mr.Brett Bean use it together with red pencils which liked the finish off together with white highlights . I love his handwork and use of strong shapes simple shapes which is what I need to practice.
