Today I’m showing you a sketchbook that I’ve never taken out of the drawer. Maybe for a good reason?
Actually, they are single sheets that I then mounted in a Chinese fan-fold album.
They are not masterpieces, nor were they intended as such. Rather, I wanted to capture some impressions. It’s been 40 years since I drew it and then sorted it out as a second quality. When I saw them again, I thought they had a certain charm.
At that time I loved using charcoal pencils set in wood. Unfortunately, I can no longer get this good quality. When I came back from China in 1985, I brought a lot of painting material with me. It was cheap and of good quality. Today you have to know where you can buy good quality. You can forget all of the goods from online trading.
