Imari-Style From Belton

Originally uploaded by Anita Davies

A Chinese Imari-Style teapot from Belton House, Grantham, Lincolnshire fills the last page of my Daler Rowney Ebony sketchbook. I visited Belton back in 2007, you can view my location sketches here:

The Ebony sketchbook has alot of pages and it was a pleasure to see it fill up. The only thing I found a little frustrating is that it often took quite some time for pages to dry and this held me up a bit at times. The English weather was not helpful, I'm sure it would make a great Summer journal. I overcome this by popping it on the floor of my car and turning the foot heater on full blast!

I have already started my next journal, an A5 Jacksons book made by Seawhite. I'm already using one of these for my Italian Trip Prep sketchbook which you can view here:
