SKETCHBOOK - "Trip To El Dorado"

I recently spent an enjoyable weekend visit to my hometown in Arkansas. My Mom has become a recent convert to the joys of sketchbook journaling. We spent a couple of days wandering around town, drawing whatever looked interesting at the time. These are the pages I ended up with...I was using my trusty "Moleskin" brand sketchbook, with pages made from watercolor paper. The lines are done with a "small" point Faber-Castell sepia artist pen. The washes were done with a KOI pocket field sketch box watercolor set.

Thanks, Mom, and Bonnie...I'm trying to move forward, but most days the peace ebbs and flows...so far, not sure what everything "means" per se, but we're gonna make it. Thanks for checking in!

It's fun to see these wonderful watercolors, Warren. I was just in El Do in March, and the square is just as cute as I remembered it being during my childhood.

Glad to see your sketches, especially of El Dorado, as I have never been there.

Take one day at a time and life will get better. You have a wonderful talent.
