In early November of 2017 I took a trip to Sedona, Arizona. It has been over 40 years since I’ve been there. Needless to say it has changed a lot. Could not recognize anything except the scenery. I managed a very few sketches along the way. We were on a Road Scholar trip which does not afford time to sketch. I did take many photos along the way. The first sketch is from Sedona and the derelict truck is from Holbrook, Az. The sketch above is Montezumas Castle, not far from Sedona. Then we made a day trip to the Grand Canyon. I wished I had a landscape sketchbook because this land lends itself quite well to that format for sketching.
My next trip will be to Sedona, Arizona and the Grand Canyon this fall, perhaps in September. Then to Yellowstone NP early spring of next year. We had planned the Yellowstone trip this year but it was all booked up…
This trip took place from November 13, 2016 through November 18, 2016……another very good Road Scholar trip. Plenty of time to relax and enjoy this beautiful place. The history and educational aspects were outstanding. Here are my sketches from that trip:
My wife and I took a Road Scholar trip to three Islands in Hawaii. Being in such a large group it was difficult to find time to sketch but we did have some free time. Below are sketches and notes I took while in that tropical paradise.
On a recent trip to Yosemite National Park (April 2016) I made a few sketches in my Square format Global Sketchbook (8.25″ x 8.25″ ). Nice quality paper, 95# that takes ink and Watercolors.

I took some time to make some sketches of my travels....I used a Stratmore 90 # 9" x 5.5 inch mixed media sketchbook.
