This illustrated travel journal has been a work in progress. Everything was drawn in the place featured but colour and lettering were added either later in the day or after I returned home. It’s still not quite finished even though it’s not very long. I draw slowly and I don’t wish to spend all my travel time sketching. Sometimes I just want to sit a gaze at a view and marvel that I’m half way around the world from home and that I’ve gotten there mostly under my own steam.
The first picture is of where I stayed for ten days. It was a darling cosy little cottage in Broad Campden. The map shows the places I visited. This is only a tiny part of the Cotswolds but I managed to fill each of the ten days I spent there.
After staying in England I headed to Avignon where I spent a few days before going on a small group tour into the heart of Provence.
