We just spent a week mountain biking and adventuring in New Zealand. It definitely wasn’t long enough and I definitely want to go back again…..but in the meantime I had a blast riding, adventuring and recording our adventures in my sketchbook. Take a peek…:)

 

 

I am thinking I’ll take a watercolour Moley to France later in the year as my travel journal, so I decided to do some experimenting today…here are the somewhat less than stellar results! Adapting to the new page shape is an undexpected challenge too!

My family and I have just returned from a camping holiday around Tasmania. This is my first attempt at capturing snippets of my holiday in my sketch journal. I enjoyed the process a lot, and learned that I really should take some lessons to learn to handle watercolours better.

The sketches reside in my beautiful red Moleskine 🙂 As always, click for a larger picture.

These two journal entries are from the day trip Al and I took a couple of weeks ago. I’m a bit slow getting things posted at the moment 🙁

I have come to the conclusion that I am in desperate need of some watercolour lessons 🙁 I created this muddy mess after a family outing yesterday. Ah well…gotta start somewhere I guess 🙂
