Finding a Place to Sit
Keith Valentine, Pages from a travel sketchbook

 

 

  Welcome to my website which features my book about travel sketching

 

 

 

For thirty five years I have carried a sketchbook on my travels instead of a camera.

 

This book is about what happened when I did so...

 My sketchbook opened doors, I met people,

I actually saw places (like the Registan in Samarkand, above)

 because I had to look carefully in order to draw them.

I could draw where I could not take photos. I could go on. I do in the book.

 

The nature of my trips changed completely.

Read my book and try sketching for yourselves.
