It is always useful to have a sketchbook on you, in order to ensure you are regularly drawing, whatever subject might present itself. You can do anything you want in your sketchbook: disciplined and meticulous drawings; quick studies intended as an aide-mémoire; experiments with materials; thumbnail sketches to test out composition/tone/colour; note-taking; abstract doodles; train/parking/exhibition tickets to remind you of a trip. Think of it as a visual diary, somewhere to put down on paper the workings of your mind. It is always worth looking at other artists’ sketchbooks. They can be really exciting and inspiring.
