A waterbrush and fountain pen make sketching and drawing while traveling a breeze. As Tom drives, I sit in the passenger seat recording the weather.
Whenever we stop to eat, sleep or take a hike, I capture the moment in quick sketches, carrying pen, brush and paints in my pockets.
I would have liked to stay a bit longer at Twin Falls.
I’m using a very limited palette.
In my Altoid Tin I have pans of watercolor that I have squeezed from tubes: Aureolin yellow, gamboge yellow, cadmium red light, scarlet, magenta, french ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, phthalo blue and viridian. I haven’t had the need for anything else … so far.
Sketchbook drawings: All but the top drawing were sketched first in ink with a fountain pen, followed by watercolor.
