Travel Sketches

My work is heavily influenced by my travels. I always keep a sketchbook on me and many of my sketchbook renderings act as preliminary drawings or inspiration for more finished pieces. I often sketch quickly in pen because it forces me to record what I’m seeing more accurately. Sketching also helps me to really study and observe my surroundings on a whole different level than the casual observer. I'll be sure and post sketchbook drawings periodically.

These sketchbook renderings were drawn on location from the following places.

Capitoline Hill, Rome, Italy

El Castillo, Chichen Itza, Mexico

Venice, Italy

Charleston, South Carolina

Salzburg, Austria

Subiaco Abbey, Subiaco, Arkansas
