India Themed Sketchbook

A moleskine watercolour sketchbook accompanied me on my recent travels to Jaipur. I spent some time prepping pages before I went, had chance to do a few sketches in the evenings whilst I was away, and have continued to work in it since my return, inspired by the many photographs and samples that I brought home. Here are a selection of pages from the sketchbook. I am finally feeling more confident in my drawing, although the odd mistake is still creeping in (such as the windows on the perspective sketch of the factory floor). I am pleased with the varied techniques and subject matter, from textures and colour to illustration and simply recording blocks from the block factory. I particularly enjoyed using the natural dyes at the woodblock factory to colour a couple of pages. The colours are so rich.
