Sketches from Alaska 2009

Hello again,

Here are my sketches from a trip to Alaska in 2009. I used a watercolour sketchbook and non-waterproof ink so that I could add wash or waterproof ink + watercolour pencils + wash to my sketches.

The following were sketched from life.


1-5 Ketchikan

... more to come ...

Re: Sketches from Alaska 2009

These were sketched from photos taken at an aquarium in Seward, Alaska. These are in an 8.5x11" book, directly in ink, and sketched from the digital photos displayed on the computer monitor.


26-30 Aquarium

Re: Sketches from Alaska 2009

These are magnificent! What a great travel sketchbook. I love the landscapes in monochrome ink, the architectural sketches are fun. The stuff on the ship reminds me of your Scavenger Hunt drawings and made me smile, loved the orchids especially ... and then you got me with the sea life series from aquarium photos on the camera monitor.

Wow. Especially the otter series, so much motion and action in those. The ducks. The starfish and brittle stars and fish... I could recognize everything in that great sea life series and the octopus made a perfect finish.

Well done!

Re: Sketches from Alaska 2009

This is fabulous EP. I love the expressions you got on the eels. The glacier with the light blue wash is my favorite. That one gave me goosebumps. I could feel the cold air. Wonderful, wonderful sketches.

Re: Sketches from Alaska 2009

Excellent work, EP! The otters (and birds, of course) are my favorites, though the building sketches are great as well (hard to do from life and get good results, at least for me).

Re: Sketches from Alaska 2009

Reggie, Robert, Vivien, Debby, and John - thank you


* * * * *



When I returned home I added some dilute fluid acrylics to some of my sketches.


Note that these are all on 6x12" pages, so a two-page spread is 6x24".


... and four more to come ...
