Scotland Sketchbook Part 6

Fishing villages have wonderful architecture on hills overlooking the sea, and harbors full of lobster traps, which were a challenge for me to capture!

Scotland Sketchbook Part 5

One of our favorite places in Crail was the Crail Harbour Tea Room and Gallery.  We returned several times and I sketched while enjoying terrific treats!

Scotland Sketchbook Part 4

Here are a few sketches made on the fly as we hiked the Fife Coastal Path. 

We had a week of perfect weather for walking and sketching:  cool, sunny, a little wind to help my paints dry...

Scotland Sketchbook Part 3

Welcome to Crail.

We stayed in a lovely fishing village for our first few days in Scotland, enjoying the landscape, and hiking to other little villages.

It had a walled harbor that was fun to sketch from a nearby hill.

Scotland Sketchbook Part 2

One of the best ways to entertain myself in an airport is by sketching the folks I see there.

I liked working with a pen that wasn't black.

Scotland Sketchbook Part 1

I just realized I never posted any of my sketches from my trip to Scotland in August 2017!

So I'm going to do that over the next few weeks, as I do some more traveling.

This shows the art supplies I took.  I always spend five times as much time figuring out art supplies as I do figuring out what clothes to pack.

More Sketching Dissociation

I'm still playing around with ideas about how to visually render an experience of dissociation during a traumatic event.

I'm working on this as I develop my graphic memoir. 

What I remember is feeling like I was watching the whole scene as if from a traffic helicopter, well above, with a sort of map and routes below.
