Sketchbook Sailor

I took no camera on my two month sailing trip last year but came back with two full sketchbooks and a story to tell. From Galapagos to Easter Island and round Cape Horn to the Falkland on board Dutch sailing ship 'Tecla', we experienced the beauty and power of the Pacific and Southern Ocean.

Every day I filled a page or two of my sketchbook journal and all the pages are here, reflecting the challenges and joys of painting at sea.
