This sketchbook includes more than twenty drawings of Kathleen Sutherland seated in a variety of positions. It seems more than likely that these drawings were made when Sutherland was experimenting and thinking how to paint his first portrait; as this would explain the inclusion of copies of several portrait heads by Picasso, exemplifying an alternative approach.
There are also drawings with nature themes in this sketchbook, which range in date from 1947-1951, and two drawings for the Somerset Maugham portrait of 1949.
