I began meeting a friend occasionally to do some on site sketching, and I found that I was enjoying it more than I expected. I went and bought an inexpensive watercolor set (just until I get a feel for the medium) so that I can first, experiment with the medium since I have never been formally trained in watercolor, and secondly, so I can add some color to my sketches. I'm starting to get a feel for the medium, but I have a long way to go.
My husband came up with an idea to do a Bahama Cruise (which caught me by surprise since he really has a hard time staying away from the mountains and we go every chance we get), but he has always wanted to try a cruise and he felt the time was right. I don't know what I was most excited about...the chance to see new places or the opportunity to do a travel journal of the Bahamas.
Below are some of the sketches from my journal:
Sketch Journals are now a part of me and I will continue to journal. :)
