Mount Cook

NZ – Mount Cook National Park

This post is about day 14, as we drive to Twizel, Lindis Pass And Mount Cook. Day 13 did not have many on site sketches, so art from my photos can be posted later, if they get completed!

Sketches from this day are all about Mount Cook. Enjoy!

Another unique trip happening soon!

I thought I’d be so busy with Grey Matter, that I wouldn’t have the time or energy for anything overseas this year. But – fate (and Art Safari!) has a way of throwing things at you, and when this trip showed up, I decided to take it!

So, I’ve renewed my watercolor palette, and switched out compose blue for a cobalt turquoise. (So yummy!) Watercolor palette 2020

A little geography quiz for you, can you name this country? Map Hint – it’s NOT in the northern hemisphere!

Answer coming in the next post!

Well that’s embarrassing!

While everyone else was wishing a happy new year yesterday, I was busy minimizing, a favorite past time of mine. I emptied out a rarely used closet, only to find these:

So many art supplies!

So many art supplies!

Yes, of course I was ecstatic to find sketchbooks and watercolor pads that I had completely forgotten existed! The negative part is – just before my Morocco trip, I went looking for sketch pads to bring, and ended up ordering new ones because I couldn’t find these, tsk, tsk.

Instead of sketching these two drawerfuls, I will instead get right to finishing up my trip sketches and blog posts. AND, I guess I’ll “need” to make a “resolution” to use my sketchbooks, and not hide them away where they’ll be forgotten.
