new sketchbookI always get a burst of enthusiasm as I start a new sketchbook so on the journey to Manchester I sketch whatever I see from the train window.

This new sketchbook has a tough chunky look. In keeping with my new-found determination to get back into more regular sketching this new book is black; the last one, a gift, had a pretty floral design on the cover. It's just on the landscape side of square and I chose a size that would just fit into my bumbag.
