Everyday's sketches

You can't do sketches enough. Sketch everything and keep your curiosity fresh. (John Singer Sargent)
I was so inspired by reading Danny Gregory's books (http://dannygregory.com) so I started to sketch in 2010. It's hard to find time to sketch everyday but I try to sketch when I get time. My goal is to travel with my sketchbook and record my journey through notes, drawing and sketches. I believe sketching/drawing is the most important part before the painting stage. 
Thank you for taking time to view, to appreciate, to comment my work.
I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy sketching them.
I got this elephant poo paper as a gift. Beautiful paper for sketching with the fountain pens but not with water colours.

"Dove" chocolate. I find sketching can take as much time as I paint a painting.

Study of the tea tags. Have you noticed the tea tag when you're making tea? 
Study of sugar packages. Some of them are done on Post-it notes because the colour of the sugar package is the same colour as the Post-it notes.

I challenged myself sketching transparency paper. It was not easy but I think I did it pretty good job, don't you think? :) I wanted to try it again. I never like H pencils but I think i need to use 4H to 8H pencils for sketching transparency.
