Back from a short holiday and fighting a nasty cold after the flight. To get my mind off feeling so blah I have scanned a couple of pages from my travel sketchbook. These days I tend to sketch while on holidays rather than taking photos. I used the "perfect sketchbook" (9x14cm), watercolour pencils and Daniel Smith watercolour paints.

A quick sketch of some of the great street foods in Hanoi along with their obsession with strong black coffee served with tea.
Love the contrast of huge modern cities alongside traditional fishing boats on the Han river in Da Nang.
