Visit to England, June 2018

England trip, June 2018 – Colchester, London, Wells, the Cotswolds and Cardiff, Wales.  We visited several museums, saw the Monet Exhibition at the National Gallery, and was able to get in a few outdoor watercolor sketches along the way. Such a treat to live in a moist and moderate climate for 2 weeks.  A fabulous trip and I’ve come home with new, wonderful memories and a great photo stash for future painting ideas too!

Art Sketch Journal – Italy Trip

Hi Everyone,

I recently took a trip to Italy with my dear friend Bonnie and for the first time while traveling, brought my watercolor sketch kit and journal along.

What great fun to sit, relax and sketch.  After much walking, it feels good to immerse oneself in the energy of the moment without moving. I remember the details of the place when I sketch it.
