Very First Sketchbook (#6)

On board F?B Lemnos, 28.9.85 
(Fine point marker in A5 sketchbook) 

This may have been done on the ferry to Paros from Naxos (in which case I did no more sketching on that trip) or on the ferry back to Piraeus and ultimately home.

At home I attempted to make a painting from this sketch, but again it didn't work out and was destroyed.

Love your style of sketching. Just a little jealous that you are able to sketch from life. Would love to be able to do this. Looked through several postings. Not only sketch wonderfully, but paint wonderfully too. Great work.

Thank you, Ramona. I wish I could say I was a regular sketcher, but I'm not. Despite my efforts to get the sketching habit with this Very First Sketchbook, I soon fell into what can only be called the "occasional sketcher" category.
