A good exercise for a watercolor sketchbook is to focus on a detail of your subject and beyond drawing the subject, include swatches of colors that you see. This page is a study of aspen tree trunks up on the
Grand Mesa at Mesa Lakes.
This Pen & Ink with Watercolor Sketch was done over the course of two sessions due to rain, and remains one of my favorite sketches done within the park. The location is Muleshoe Bend overlooking the Fire Hole River in Yellowstone National Park.
In the next week, I am going to post some favorite sketches done prior to the development of my sketchblog. This particular sketch is one of my favorite pen & ink with watercolor sketches. I completed this one at the southern end of the Grand Teton National Park close to the Moose Visitor Center. It was a rainy summer day and the clouds were hanging low over the tops of the mountains.
This pen & ink with watercolor sketch is from a recent trip up to the Colorado National Monument to sketch this month. While I was there sketching, it sprinkled a little and snowed a little and it was still beautiful. Just another Colorado day in May! :)
