Art Adventure ~ The Traveling Sketchbook

You are invited

THE TRAVELING SKETCHBOOK

Opening Reception | Thursday, May 31st from 5 to 7 PM  |  Sentry Hill  |  York Harbor, Maine

This show presents a sample of the sketchbook pages from a six week art adventure exploring the world around us in our sketchbooks.

A group of curious, interested, intrepid individuals ventured out into the landscape in late winter to sketch the moods, the land, the architecture and the people they saw.  With sketchbooks, pencils, ink pens, watercolor, colored pencils and gouache they created individual, personal, interesting and charming renditions of the towns, villages and communities we call home.

Self Portrait on the Mac

While on the phone with the dark computer monitor in front of me I sketched what I could see of my reflection …
I grabbed some colored pencils from a jar near the window. 
I’m always running from the studio to the house so I just leave my hat on when I come indoors.
5×7 ink & colored pencil, 60 lb paper
