Click through the images for a bit of text on the subjects. Pen, markers, watercolour pencils and a waterbrush for blending. These are all in a small pocket accordion. I have no photos to share of the sketching in situ, sadly.


  1. Just lovely, Ea. And aren't these fold-out books wonderful to use?

    1. Thank you, Ruth. The accordion sketchbooks invite a different approach to composition and narrative. I think I need to do a few more projects in this kind of book before I can properly take advantage of the format. I really like the way your Japan accordion turned out with its collection of impressions.
