Walk One Hundred and Thirteen – Mother and son sketching

It was lovely to have Hugo with me on my walk. We both sat down in the field to draw Hill End Farm before it disappears. I was using the water-resistant moleskine sketchbook (which is the last one I’m going to bother with) and Hugo was using a tiny book I’d given him full of flecked brown paper.

It is lovely to see Hugo's pictures again. I hope he gets back into Illustration Friday

I don't think much of the moleskin for sketching either - except with pen. I don't know why they think it can be described as a sketchbook. I do like the way it opens flat and the cover and sometimes it's nice to have an off-white page. I do need a stitched book or I would give up on most beginnings instead of making them work and there's very little choice here.

I looked at the site dedicated to this book today (just to see I wasn't going mad!) and found a pic of the guy - dressed in black, and a link to another of his sites dedicated to IKEA. Better not say anymore :0!
There is a lot of talent in your family Julie! I like that speckly paper.
