These sketches are all in my new 9x12 Venezia Sketchbooks. the paper is wonderful for ink and takes watercolor washes very well I am inspired by the techniques in one of my favorite art books Watercolor without Boundaries by Karlyn Holman. all the drawings I plan on will be cityscapes, or landscapes, many from photos I took while on a trip to the UK and France. There will also be sketches from photo refs around the world shared by my Wetcanvas art friends.

"The Water of Life" by Steven Broadbent
located in the garden of Chester Cathederal in Chester , UK. this was a selection is the weekend drawing event.
I took a minimalistic approach on color, I really loved the statue and wanted to enhance it.
