Before I post some pages from the watercolor sketchbook that I made on my trip, I will give you this link to check out:
Trumpetvine Travels Sketchblog http://www.trumpetvine.com/sketchblog/2007/09/20/sketching_demo/
It's a great beginning lesson in sketching a scene on the spot. I've been keeping watercolor sketchbooks for about four years now, and really enjoy doing it. My own watercolor paintings are much "tighter", so it's fun to have a looser way to draw and paint.
I first saw Trumpetvine Travels when it was a printed journal, many years ago, and it was one of the main reasons I started painting. So I'm really glad that Martha has an online sketchblog now. Find out more about her at
