Retro Sketch

Before I was carrying a small sketchbook and fountain pen on the Washington, DC Metro, I was carrying a slightly bigger sketchbook and a travel watercolor set on my hikes in upstate New York. Here are two of those sketches, both done in 2003. The first is a valley in Minnewaska State Park, near Gertrude’s Nose. The second is from Anthony’s Nose in Bear Mtn. State Park, looking south down the Hudson river towards Indian Point and New York City.

    1. Thanks; yeah, I have a little affinity for water-based mediums. I’m a terminal perfectionist, so with watercolors and fountain pens, there’s always something that can go wrong, or as it’s known to artists: “pleasant surprises”. Of course, there is just something to well-done washes and bleeds that are just timeless and gorgeous.
