Travel

There are dozens of sketch-books on my shelves from dozens of travel-journeys both at home and further afield. Sometimes it is just a fleeeting moment that catches the eye. Sometimes there is more time for something more considered. Big lesson here - it's always a good idea to have a sketchbook handy! Here are some examples, mostly from overseas.
