I had a few days in France last week with my parents - was a great chance to do some sketching, partly because my dad (James Nairne) brought lots of really nice pens that I was able to use (thanks pa). I really need to be more active in my sketchbook and less precious about it - it keeps me drawing more regularly and builds my confidence with experimentation. Here's my sketchbook pages from the trip (click to see full size and scroll through images):
The bottom left sketch was my first experience using liquid pencil - pretty weird stuff. Easy to move around but quite a strange texture, not sure how I felt about it but interesting to try.
Doug and Olivia asked me to put together a design for their wedding that could be used on service sheets and the table plan - they weren't too rigid with their guidelines but did want it to include their pet tortoise, Frank, if possible...! I drew a series of draft designs for them to choose from (see below) and then developed their chosen design into a final emblem in watercolour.
