Sketching Porthleven

Hi guys I thought I’d update you on my sketchbook project. So over the last few months I’ve been steadily building a collection of sketches of Porthleven in my moleskine. It started with just the desire to draw what I saw around me and observe my environment but has grown into a little drawing addiction and a passion project.  I love drawing the old buildings and fishermen cottages and capturing them on paper really allows me to soak in the view as well as discover their histories and past lives. I now have over 50 drawings and have decided to collate them into a book along with the history, map and story of the town. I am aiming  to publish and print the book with the help of crowdfunding within the next few months and can’t wait to share it with you all. If you would like to hear how it’s going I talk about it frequently in my weekly vlogs on youtube as well as document it on my instagram account.
