A peek inside the (travel) sketchbook

I recently returned from a week of travels which began in Seattle and ended in Portland. I took a sketchbook and some new supplies: conté and charcoal pencils.


drew a Calder at the Olympic Sculpture Park,


in the Willamette valley I sketched at a couple vineyards – Domaine Drouhin


Penner Ash (and a couple more)


the only sketching I did in Seattle was at the Portland Japanese Garden.

It was a great trip and I’m happy I took my travel sketchbook. I really enjoyed the feel of conté, I haven’t used it in years. I wanted a medium that was somewhat loose but not too messy.

In other news: I’ll be showing some (abstract) works on paper in the beginning of August (opening reception: August 6th), I’ll post more information about that soon.
