Travelling with My Paint Brush
love to travel. Frank
and I take a couple of trips per year and then I also make sure I
hop on the bandwagon with my mom when she goes someplace fun. I always
take my sketch book and a box of watercolors...I like to take the
extra time to paint a little sketch rather than just snap a photo.
The little extra time
makes you really look at a subject and fix it in your memory.
I've selected a couple
of pieces from a trip we took to Mexico last year.... the
colors and shapes captured in my sketch book were translated in the
studio to these larger images.
piece "Petat!" is
of a public bus "jumper" who rides along on the steps and tries
to charm the public into coming aboard-- it's called Petat because
that is the end destination he shouted every 10 seconds.
