Studio Sketchbook with Alex Beckinsale

'I have two studio journals that I use pretty frequently in my practice. One is a small pocket sized one that I take with me almost everywhere, I use this one to doodle and jot down ideas and make studies of what I see around me. The other is an A4 notebook which I use for more in depth sketches and tonal studies. I often take a bit more time with the drawings in this book, it gives me an opportunity to be more in depth with the picture. I find keeping this journal allows me to really take the time to practice and enjoy drawing as much as I do with a more polished work.'
