Watercolor Journals

As my husband and I travel across America visiting national parks and preserves, I enjoy translating my experiences into watercolor sketches. These sketches serve two purposes: as studies for future landscape paintings and as pages for potential watercolor journals. I tell the story of these special American landscapes by adding commentary to the sketches and binding the sketches into watercolor journals. Because these watercolor journals allow me to combine both images and words, I can say more about the landscapes than I can in a single painting or series of paintings, and I like that option.
