I was going through my sketchbook the other day and came across this watercolor sketch that I did when we were in Portugal. It was a fabulous trip and going through the sketchbook reminded me of this sunny day as we stopped for a break and I had this great view of the castle.
It has become one of my great joys of painting to carry around my sketchbook on my travels, take the time to actually paint the scene and then to be able to truly remember the details when you look at that painting later on. It is so much more than a snapshot.
Stay tuned as I share more paintings from my travels from around the block to around the world.

    Beautiful! I always mean to carry one but haven't made it a habit. Your painting is wonderful.

    Thanks Marjie! I have to admit I am a bit of a journal junkie- I can never seem to pass up a new one from the art store, especially the pretty handmade ones.
