Here is my Strathmore Field Watercolor Sketch book. As you can see by the cover, it has traveled a bit with me. Here are a few of the watercolors inside. It’s nice to take a few minutes at different places and paint a bit of a watercolor sketch. There is a piece of regular paper between each sheet which is nice for taking notes or doing a black and white sketch. For the Lake Powell watercolor I wrote, “Motor boats in the distance. Slight breeze. Heat of the sun beating on left ear.” In Logan I wrote, “Sitting by an irrigation ditch, listening to the water gurgle by. Slight waterfall to right, cool breeze blowing, dragon flies over head.”

The combination of watercolor and words brings the places to life in my memory. I might of forgot the heat in the desert of Lake Powell if I hadn’t written of the heat on my left ear. When you are traveling with others, there is always moments of quiet when others are getting ready or not quite up or taking naps where you can grab your paints and sketch book and make a memory of the spot you’re at. I have one more page to fill and then I’ll take the Field book out of my back pack and put it on the shelf. Then it will be time to get a new one to travel with me.
