Travel Vignettes Morocco

When I travel, I love to sketch who and what I see. I usually do this by looking at what I am sketching and not at the paper. The results are far more visually interesting to me than if I tried to play camera and get all the details just so. If I like what I see when I finally do look at the inked lines, I then fill them in with either watercolor or colored pencils. For that part, I do look at the page. The sketches are a balance of freedom and control, and most of these happily found themselves as illustrations for the anthology, Vignettes & Postcards from Morocco, published by Reputation Books, ReputationBooksLLC.com [2016]
