theTravelsketcher this week – 12 March 2021


This week I travelsketched around the world, capturing the memories in paper sketchbooks and digitally on my iPad, savoring both. The experience is different on each; challenging as well as enjoyable.

The weeks journey began in Trôo, a small village in the Loire Valley; thanks to Tricia and Travels Through My Lens for the reference photos. We admired the buildings and troglodyte homes, then ate lunch at Auberge Sainte Catherine.

Château de Lavardin, is one of the plethora of chateau in the Loire Valley – some pristine, some derelict.

Then, motivated by a travel show about the lochs of Scotland, I virtually visited Loch Maree in western Scotland. My reading group of Nature Obscura brought me back to Puget Sound for a sketch of a Barn Swallow – both on paper with fude pen and watercolor.

Then it was back to France, Moustiers-Sainte-Marie. Thanks to @C_pax_photographies (Instagram) for the reference photo.

This week’s travels ended with a vision of the Cascade Mountains and a memory from our last trip to Tokyo. We were staying in the Iidiabashi area, one morning I got up to go for a matcha, the subways are packed with commuters in the morning, who stride down the streets toward their offices, I felt like I was going the wrong way on a one-way street.

I hope your week was good. The news is encouraging that we may be able to actually travel again one day. In the meantime keep traveling, in your neighborhood or virtually, sketching and sharing your adventures.

    Loved the hiker observing the lake scene you painted. You did not describe that as well as I would have liked.
