Hi Friends! I've been away for a while it seems. I was on an amazing backpacking trip through the Sierra Nevadas. It was a lot of hard work but I also had some downtime to relax and get inspired by the beautiful scenery. I brought a small travel watercolor set, some markers, and two colored pencils. I also had one of these brushes which was so perfect for what I was using it for. There were so many interesting rocks along the trail - I wanted to paint them all! But of course there was no time for that so take a look at my selection of favorites below. Stay tuned for many more pages from my sketchbook. I have plenty to share!
There's something so nostalgic about summertime for me. When I was little I'd spend hours in the water practicing my synchronized swimming moves. And I remember that one time my brother told me to sniff the bottom of the pool because it smelt like strawberries. Ha. Ha. Good times.
