I always thought I’d be finishing this with watercolors,
but this year has been a doozy and so I am finally choosing to publish
the inked drawings of a lovely walk with Virtual Sketchwalk.
We walked all over Taos and I choose two areas.
The first are from the Milicent Rogers museum.
I took liberties and juxtaposed statues with a view of the courtyard.
I ended up loving the various ways my photography of the statue looking
over her shoulder presented different feelings.
The Native American statue in the hoop is actually far outside the complex,
not dancing on top of the building!
The other area I choose was the Taos Pueblo.
I went for a sweeping view of it from afar
and a detail of it, sketched from a photo by Fran Graciotripp.
You can see how I draw with the idea of topping with watercolors.
I tend toward simple lines with watercolors
being the addition that gives depth and texture.
