Watercolor sketches



I am STILL dealing with post-journey details, such as scanning some pages from my little travel sketchbook and posting them here. Here are two scenes from Thailand. The top one was seeds I found along the trail, and I was pleased with how the stream turned out in the lower sketch. Watercolor is funny, sometimes you mix colors and then they flow and settle out in unexpected and cool ways all on their own.

Paperwork and cleaning day today. Sales tax is due shortly, and last year I missed the deadline by ONE DAY and suddenly owed a bunch of money. Not gonna let that happen again.
