charcoal sketch in the niger deltaAll three of these charcoal sketches were done within 50 metres of one another, standing on the banks of the river, holding a small pastel sketch pad in my hand.

Now I am back home, the immediacy of these sketches bring flooding back the noises, smells, colours and atmosphere of the delta. Fantastic. Better than a shed load of photographs!
