Here is a colored in sketch I did of a Hana waterfall that we saw on our Maui trip. It was a pencil sketch I had made in my Maui book. The book was one that I made from an "Open Spine" bookmaking class my sister and I took a while back. I have been creating different pages in the book from our Maui trip.
However, about a couple months ago, I took it on a little trip to Monterey. I wanted to practice and learn to sketch for relaxing. It worked out well until I accidentally took it down to the ocean and climbing back up I dropped it in the water. It is fine now after it dried out except the photos had to be replaced. And a few of my hand-drawn items were kind of messed up. This one had gotten some color bled on it, so today I decided to add more color and see what would happen. Still need to work on depth perspective but it is a start. This works in with Inspiration Avenue's theme of Tropical. Lots to learn but this one turned a negative into a positive, always a good thing.
