July 2014: Trip to Adirondacks and New York - Part 5 (last one)

July 2014: Travel Sketching Tools
This post is mostly about process shots - I took some photos while sketching on my trip and posted them on the go when internet became available. And below are all of them - grouped :)

As for the tools themselves: I tried a couple of new things: liquid watercolors in waterbrushes (they almost did not leak on the plane ;) And another thing was that I took a smaller notebook with me designated specifically for this trip. Liquid watercolors were fun but not a necessity. But small notebook which fitted in my waist pouch with all the supplies or in my jacket/pocket and hence was with me at almost all times made a huge difference. I sketched daily - even though this trip was packed with actions and people of all ages, interaction, water, movement and serendipity.

July 2014: Trip to Adirondacks and New York - Part 1

Looking at the road towards out lodging. Sitting under the UFO perched in a stick (have no clue what that was) and enjoying wetness and greens.

Swimming to this rock across the lake was a daily ritual. Really great view from the top of it and blueberries growing in the cracks were almost ripe!

Humming Bird: Close-Up

We saw a baby hummingbird the other day. He was answering his mom's calls who was hovering over and peeping to him to get up and start moving it's wings before the night falls :)

His mom (or other close relative) was not happy about us hanging around so we left pretty soon after sketching this little guy.

Last Day of Lilies

May 2014: Last Day of Lilies
I drew these flowers when they were jus buds and then through their short but very fragrant life outside since it was impossible to live in the same house with them :) And this was a good bye. Till the next bunch!
