Whenever I travel somewhere, I take a small sketchbook with me. These sketches where done while travelling through Nepal, some of them on typical Nepali handmade paper.
Sometimes all it needs is a quick sketch of a remarkable scene, which you can later turn into a larger painting.

It’s been quite a while since I last found the time to do some creative work because I’ve been teaching a lot of courses recently.

I made them using graphite and colour pencils.
I like to use a kneaded eraser to remove parts of the drawing before going over the part with colour pencils again.
