Travels with Sketchbook: The Grand Canyon

Watercolor and pigment marker on watercolor paper. Image of the Grand Canyon's North Rim at sunrise.

Sunrise is a special time at the Grand Canyon! After loosely placing the washes on site, I added detail with pigment markers later that day.

My portfolio page, Travels with Sketchbook, has been updated with a new gallery of images made during our recent trip to the Grand Canyon.

For this series of landscape sketches, I returned to the slightly “naive” style I’ve used in earlier travel sketches—loose watercolor sketches defined with pen and ink lines and marks.

There are 2 botanical sketches in the gallery: One is rendered in color pencil, the other is color washes with pen. Both were made at the side of some of the main trails in the park! It just goes to show you that you can find interesting things right under your nose, if you’ll only take the time to look carefully. 🙂
