Landscapes From The Trail

A bright colourful drawing of a line of trees.

New Art Section Coming Soon

This new page will soon feature a gallery of my landscape sketchbooks and journals that I make on the trail, as well as wanderings closer to home.

Sat on the cliffs drawing

I never go for a hike without a sketchbook in my rucksack and sometimes that’s where it stays, but leaving home without one would be like leaving home without a map and compass – you don’t miss it until you need it. Taking time out, even just 10 minutes, to sit and look at a landscape is what makes me feel connected to it. Photographs don’t really do that for me, not with my phone camera anyway – a few seconds looking through a lens and that’s it, I’m moving on, passing through. But a drawing…that’s a journey in itself.

I hope you enjoy coming along.

I’ll be back soon with some better images! Have you signed up to my newsletter The Extra Mile? I publish some of my work there from time to time but plan to make it a more regular feature – why not come and see what I get up to? (It’s full of hiking news too, obviously!) There’s a subscribe form just below – I’d love to have you along.

Thanks for reading and happy hiking!
