VSW: Hawaii, Oahu 2

W16 6 25 VSW OAHU 001Amy Lauren Gettys *thank you* gave us wonderful images to paint, and I had fun
in this incredibly busy month putting together the second page in the spread.
I haven’t done a collage in ages, and because of my shortened time I just kept
adding sketches of this and that until it all came together with the colors.

Sea Turtles, Tiki statues, Macaw flowers, Star Shooter, Monsteras… When gods walked
the earth as men, Tiki images recognized their divinity,and their human qualities.

One of the most fun walks we’ve done — and finally I used Cobalt Teal!

Moleskin 8×11 watercolor journal, Pentalic HB woodless pencil, watercolor pencils, Platinum Carbon and Lamy pens with De Atramentis Document black and turquoise ink,

I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together.  Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.

I also created an accompanying Flickr group!

    Love the turtle and cobalt blue, Katie. I’m fascinated by your use of color under the lines of the turtle. Very cool.

    I read a very sad story about a sea turtle today. This made me feel better.
