Holiday vacation

We spent holiday time in a lovely house among redwoods - I liked deck overlooking small opening between trees the most.

This was an attempt to take a real dip pen and brush and a little bit of ink with me "into the wild" - it worked really nicely, I had a lot of fun but little container was a bit too small and when my hands got a little stiff with cold I managed to get ink everywhere on my hands ;)

When we were not spending time in the house we were hiking in the forest:

man-made structures in the wood

This is another example of how my sketchbook got additional pages ;)

I think I took a picture of this spread with little pages open - will try to find and post tomorrow ;)

Sketchbook #1008: Liz visit to the Bay Area

Liz Steel visited Bay area this fall and I had a chance to join her and Suhita and Gay to draw and chat about different projects and life...
